RIP, James Brown the God Father of Soul



James Brown died early Monday Dec 25th at Atlanta's Emory Crawford Long Hospital of congestive heart failure.

Bad news on the holy day. While Christians around the world are celebrating the birth of their savior Jesus Christ, some people are mourning the death of their idol, James Brown.

The legendary R&B singer and songwriter, widely known for his hit singles like "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" and "I Got You (I Feel Good)," died early Monday Dec 25th at Atlanta's Emory Crawford Long Hospital of congestive heart failure. He was 73.

Brown was in Atlanta for a dental appointment when he fell ill and was admitted to the hospital over the weekend for pneumonia. "It appears what happened is that he did die of a heart attack as a result of his pneumonia," the singer's agent Frank Copsidas explained.

"The most difficult thing is for me to stand here without him. We were a team," Charles Bobbit, Brown's personal manager said. Bobbit said he was at Brown's bedside when he died. Brown told him, "I'm going away tonight." Then he took three long, quiet breaths, and closed his eyes, Bobbit continued.
