To mark the passing of James Brown, Legacy.com has created a Guest Book where friends, family members and admirers can offer their condolences.
The Guest Book for James Brown, the dynamic, pompadoured "Godfather of Soul," whose rasping vocals and revolutionary rhythms made him a founder of rap, funk and disco as well, died early Monday, is available at http://www.legacy.com/Link.asp?ID=GB20430155, and through the obituary sections of Legacy.com’s 300 newspaper affiliates.
Legacy.com (http://www.legacy.com) posted Guest Books for almost 1 million Americans last year, including well known figures such as Rosa Parks, whose Guest Book drew notes from more than 45,000 admirers.
Others who have been honored through Legacy.com Guest Books include:
- Soul singer Wilson Pickett
- Country legend Johnny Cash
- President Ronald Reagan
- Hall of Fame outfielder Kirby Puckett
- Pope John Paul II
- Civil War historian Shelby Foote
- R&B legend Luther Vandross
Described by CBSMarketWatch as the “granddaddy” of online obituary companies, http://www.Legacy.com powers obituary sections for more than 300 U.S. newspapers, providing monitored Guest Books, archive services, and other features for one in two people who die in the United States. Investors include Tribune Company.
