Nick Ashford 1942-2011

Ashford and Simpson was another example of Black Love.

They are known as one of the best songwriting duos in history and a beautiful couple to many of their fans.She was known for her beautiful braids and he was known for that flowing mane of hair and that beautiful coco hue. All of my friends, sister's and I used to refer to him as the "Black Jesus" because of the way he looked. I played their songs during many a heartbreak and pain and even in happiness. I'm saddened just like many of you who heard the news of his death. If you're over the age of 30 and listen to real music, then you know of and have heard of Ashford and Simpson. No one writes love songs like them anymore.

May Nick rest in eternal peace and may GOD be with Valerie and their family in this time of sorrow. 
They truly were "Solid As A Rock."
