PHILADELPHIA (AP) – January 13, 2010 — A relative says soul singer Teddy Pendergrass has died in suburban Philadelphia at age 59. The singer’s son, Teddy Pendergrass II, says his father died Wednesday at Bryn Mawr Hospital. Pendergrass’ son says his father underwent colon cancer surgery eight months ago and had “a difficult recovery.” The elder Pendergrass was injured in a car accident in 1982. He suffered a spinal cord injury and was paralyzed from the waist down. He spent six months in a hospital but returned to recording the next year with the album “Love Language.”

Here’s one of my favorite Teddy Pendergrass songs, “Close the Door” but he has HITS for days! If you don’t know about it, DO YOUR RESEARCH! You can’t be a real lover of music if you don’t appreciate the old school hits. 🙂 R.I.P. Teddy Pendergrass
