Godfather of Soul James Brown Has Prostate Cancer
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Singer James Brown, the music pioneer known as The Godfather of Soul, has prostate cancer and will have surgery next week, his publicist said on Friday.
The 71-year-old Brown, who just finished a two-week Canadian tour, will have surgery at an undisclosed hospital in Georgia on Dec. 15, said publicist Simone Smalls.
Brown then plans to begin promoting his memoir, “I Feel Good: A Memoir of a Life of Soul,” to be published in January.
Brown has had 119 singles make the charts and made more than 50 albums since his debut record, “Please, Please, Please,” was released in 1956.
Fans wanting to direct well-wishes to Brown can address him at, Smalls said.
A member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and honored with Lifetime Achievement Award by the Grammys, Brown was recognized at the Kennedy Center Honors last year where presenter Secretary of State Colin Powell called him the “Secretary of Soul” and “Foreign Minister of Funk.”
