(Reuters) – Hot Chocolate lead singer Errol Brown has died at the age of 71 after suffering from liver cancer, his manager said on Wednesday.
Hot Chocolate was known for hits such as “Emma,” “Every 1’s a Winner” and “You Sexy Thing.”
The singer passed away at his home in The Bahamas, with his wife Ginette and daughters Colette and Leonie by his side, manager Phil Dale said, describing him as a “gentle man.”
“Errol was a lover of life and obviously ‘music!’. I never went into his home, car or a hotel room without music playing,” Dale said in a statement. “And it always played constantly in his dressing room before a concert.”
