    Teddy Pendergrass, known for his soulful classics “Love TKO,” “Close The Door,” and “Turn Off The Lights,” passed away after a battle with colon cancer Wednesday night in his hometown of Philadelphia. Pendergrass was 59 years old.

    On March 18, 1982, the singer, who started his career as lead singer for Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, was involved in a car accident which left him paralyzed from the waist down. Yet, even though he was confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life, Pendergrass continued to record and tour the world.

    You can hear Pendergrass’ influence on music throughout the hip-hop culture. Take a listen.
