‘Stand By Me’ Singer Ben E. King Leaves The World Mourning

Date:

No, I won’t be afraid as long as you stand by me….

R&B and soul singer Ben E King, best known for the classic song Stand By Me, has died at the age of 76.

According to reports and his publicist’s statement, Ben E. King died on Thursday of a heart ailment. He was 76 years old, so this doesn’t come as a shock or surprise, but it’s still a major loss for the music community.

King started his career in the late 1950s with The Drifters, singing hits including There Goes My Baby and Save The Last Dance For Me.

After going solo, he hit the US top five with Stand By Me in 1961.

It returned to the charts in the 1980s, including a three-week spell at number one in the UK following its use in the film of the same name and a TV advert.

King’s other hits included Spanish Harlem, Amor, Don’t Play That Song (You Lied) and Supernatural Thing – Part I.

Will miss you King!
