It was reported on July 23, 2010 that Al Jarreau was critically ill at a hospital in France near the French Alps and was being treated for respiratory problems. He had been taken to the intensive care unit at Gap late on July 22, 2010. He was in the area to perform a concert at nearby Barcelonnette. I still remember him singing on We are The World.His voice was very Soulful and Sweet,He was the right fit for that song. May he get well soon to continue to spread his Musical voice and love for those who love his music. He's 70 years Young. Can you believe it. What a Milestone ?.
