UTG is sad to learn that legendary soul musician Bobby Womack has been diagnosed with the first stages of colon cancer. His best friend Bootsy Collings broke this terrible news over Twitter and the statement can be found by looking below. We wish Bobby Womack a successful recovery and to stay strong during this tough time.
Despite these recent events, Womack is still planning on releasing The Bravest Man in Universe in June. This will be the first material put out in over a decade from the artist.
“Funkateers, send prayers & love vibes up for Bobby Womack. He is fighting pneumonia in the hospital now. Will update after I talk to him,” Collins tweeted, followed by an update moments ago.
“I JUST SPOKE TO OUR FRIEND BOBBY WOMACK. He Wanted You All to Know That He Loves You & Thxs for the Prayers. Docs Says He Is In 1st Stage of Colon Cancer, He is Very Up Beat About His Future, we laughed & joked before we hung up. Thxs Funkateers, we will get him Back on the One!”
