Bobby Womack, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009, is considered one of the greatest R&B singers and is responsible for hits includingLookin’ For a LoveThat’s The Way I Feel About Cha, Across 110th Street and If You Think You’re Lonely Now.

After suffering from a series of health problems in recent years including diabetes, pneumonia and colon cancer, Womack confirmed in January last year that he was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
