CLEVELAND - As part of Black History Month, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will celebrate Cleveland's rich musical legacy with the city's R&B/soul music history.
On Feb. 22, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will welcome 2009 inductee and Cleveland native Bobby Womack for a Hall of Fame Series interview and live concert.
Womack is a soul and gospel figurehead whose resume includes significant contributions across the decades as a singer, songwriter and guitarist.
In 2012, Womack returned with The Bravest Man in the Universe – his first album in 12 years – which earned rave reviews. He's written songs recorded by Wilson Pickett ("I'm a Midnight Mover"), George Benson ("Breezin'"), Janis Joplin ("Trust Me") and others.
Womack was a hitmaking machine in the mid-70s, perennially present in the Top Ten with such numbers as 1974's "You're Welcome, Stop On By," 1975's "Check It Out" and 1976's "Daylight."
