In 1962, Bradley's sister took him to James Brown's landmark performance at the Apollo Theater – the show transformed Bradley, who would later find regional success in New York as a James Brown impersonator named Black Velvet.

In 2011, Bradley released his debut album No Time for Dreaming with the Menahan Street Band after a string of singles – the album, which included the galvanizing "The World (Is Going Up in Flames)," was named by Rolling Stone as one of the 50 Best Albums of the Year.

Victim of Love, with its unlikely hit "Strictly Reserved for You," would follow in 2013, earning near-universal critical acclaim and bolstering Bradley's status as a soul star with unmatched authenticity. 

Bradley's final album, Changes, arrived in 2016, taking its title from a cover on the album of Black Sabbath's 1972 ballad.

Bradley hadn't heard of the heavy metal pioneers, but connected with Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler's personal lyrics about transformation as Bradley watched his mom's health deteriorate.

Over the course of three albums, Bradley, known as the "Screaming Eagle of Soul," blended heartfelt ballads of love, longing and remorse with raucous tracks celebrating joy and the survival of a hardscrabble life.
It took more than a year, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made their first public appearance together as a couple — even if they were separated by a couple rows.

The Suits star, 36, star showed her support for the royal, 33, at his Invictus Games in Toronto, which runs from Saturday through Sept. 30.

Markle, who films the hit legal drama in the Canadian city, was all smiles as she cheered on the athletes in the Paralympic-style Invictus Games for wounded service members from around the world. Meanwhile, Harry sat a few rows away next to First Lady Melania Trump whom he met with earlier in the day.

Markle wore a purple dress with a purple leather coat over her shoulders as she sat with friend Markus Anderson.

She stood along with the rest of the crowd during the Canadian national anthem and clapped heartily as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (her acquaintance and a friend of Harry) made his welcome address.

She also applauded as Mike Meyers — an official ambassador of the games — gave a rousing speech, talking about his parents who served in World War II.
