Legacy: RIP James Ingram

Buttered Soul Pop is how I once described his emotional, sweet, passionate baritone voice…and now it – one of my favorite vocalists – is silenced at 66.

Rest peacefully, James Ingram.

Here he is in 1981 on “Soul Train” singing one of his (many) signature songs (and one of my eternal favorites), “Just Once.” Yes, it’s lip-synced (all Soul Train performances were), but no less magical.
