In Memory Of Billy Paul

We are saddened by the news that American soul singer Billy Paul, best-known for his Grammy Award winning classic “Me and Mrs. Jones,” passed away on Sunday morning.

A master of the Philly Soul sound, and a socially-conscious advocate of civil and human rights, Billy Paul was one of the most popular and influential artists associated with Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff’s groundbreaking Philadelphia International Records.

Legacy Recordings and Sony Music Entertainment offer sincerest condolences to Mr. Paul’s family, friends and fans. Billy will be missed by many, but the songs he recorded, the Philly Soul sound he created, and the work he did for the causes he supported will live on forever.
