Two more star icons moving on!

 

 

It seems that I have been blogging for a few days about celebrities health issues. Well today we are faced with yet two more deaths in the celebrity icon world.

Oscar-winning soul singer Isaac Hayes who, along with Al Green, James Brown and Stevie Wonder, was one of the dominant black artists in the early 1970s, died in Memphis on Sunday. He was 65. We all know him for the movie “Shaft” he was the singer that made the theme song for the movie. I remember watching it and thought it was really some great P.I. stuff.  Eventhough Samuel Jackson played a more up todate and modern figure Shaft, in the more recent version, my mind still went back the orginal version.

Then there is Bernie Mac who was in the hospital being treated for phenoumia died this past Saturday. Bernie Mac blended style, authority and a touch of self-aware bluster to make audiences laugh as well as connect with him. For Mac, who died Saturday at age 50, it was a winning mix, delivering him from a poor childhood to stardom as a standup comedian, in films including the casino heist caper “Ocean’s Eleven” and his acclaimed sitcom “The Bernie Mac Show.”

Both men will be missed as they had much to contribute to our entertainment of music and comedy.

 

R.I.P. Gentlemen!

Get Well Morgan Freeman!

One of my favorite actors was in a horrible accident in Mississippi where his car flipped over several times, left the road and ended up in a ditch today. He has been life flighted to the near hospital facility in critical condition.

He had to be cut from the vehicle and of course was showing off his sense of humor with his rescuers.

I pray that all will be well with this Oscar award winning actor and offer him and his family a speedy recovery. You have still much to do Morgan so get well!
