Music star McFadden dies...

Just heard the talented soul singer and songwriter (No, not Brian McFadden) ...Gene McFadden has died of cancer aged 56.
He formed a songwriting duo with John Whitehead and went on to write and record a string of R'n'B hits, often covered by other more famous stars.
His co-writer, John Whitehead is also dead, having been shot dead in Philadelphia in 2004.
No, I don't know why either.

Best known for creating original song, "Ain't No Stoppin' Us now"; this became a global hit, entering the top 10 on both sides of the Atlantic, selling more than eight million records and was nominated for a Grammy Award.'
Luther Vandross fans will know Luther's cover version of this track.
I'm not into rap, but rap fans will know this song was also covered by rapper Big Daddy Kane.

Good Luck!
See you.
