Modern day soul hero, RAPHAEL SAADIQ has just recorded a tribute to one of soul’s all-time heroes – the late, great BOBBY WOMACK. The song is a moving ballad called ‘Gonna Miss U’ and the ex Tonis man has posted the song on Sound Cloud.

The posting also contains the following message from Saadiq: “Bobby Womack is one of my musical soul International known Heroes, Never had to chance to work with him, or even talk to him, But I did get a chance to shake his hand and say hello, although he didn’t know when I spoke to him, if felt like I knew him for a very long time, my parents would always play Bobby Womack Records in the house, and I continued to listen to them, So, much love to Bobby Womack and his Family, Here’s Toast to Bobby, a song I finish last night after I heard the news”
