The R&B/Soul Group Bloodstone has been around since the early 60’s, but has been an important part of R&B and Pop Music history since the release of “Natural High” back in 1973, the iconic song, lead by bassist and lead singer, Charles McCormick, topped the R&B and Pop Charts on it’s way to going Gold then Platinum, cementing the group in music history. We were recently informed that McCormick has passed away.

The group formed on the local scene in Kansas City as “The Sinceres” (a self contained vocal/instrumental group), band founders Harry Williams, Charles McCormick, Charles Love, Willis Draffen, Roger Durham, Melvin Webb, Hense Powell and Kenneth Smith took their unique sound to stages across their native Kansas City, crossing racial boundaries and working to establish harmony both on and off stage. The band honed its skills and crafted what became the distinctive BLOODSTONE sound before striking out for London, England, in 1972 where they were signed to Decca Records. The groups music was released stateside on Motown.

Bloodstone

Bloodstone’s other hits include “Never Let You Go”, “Outside Woman” and “My Little Lady”. Bloodstone was instrumental in the “black rock” and funk movement of the 1970s, and even played a role in the brown-eyed-soul movement with some Latin-tinged hits. Bloodstone performed with a virtual who’s who of stellar performers over the years.

In recent years McCormick continued the group with Harry Williams and Donald Brown and has also recorded a few songs outside of Bloodstone as a single artist. We have included a couple of those solo recordings below. Our condolences to the family.

Scott finally did speak to the rumor by addressing people’s enthusiasm toward the racy gossip… ““Say word!?!” “I expect this energy when my new movies, albums and tv show drop. Y’all too much. #headedbacktowork #hydrate.” The classy rebuttal was accompanied by a GIF of herself bowing onstage.

To sum it up… Much ado about nothing. Someone tweeted something about how there was a ‘racy’ video of Jill floating around, which then led “Jill Scott sex tape” to trend on Twitter, which in turn. Lead some fans to frantically search the internet for hours, while many others shared jokes and memes. Then acceptance that it was all a hoax.

Prior to the sex tape controversy, the 49-year-old singer recently appeared on Jemele Hills’ Unbothered Podcast where she revealed that she is considering moving from the U.S. for the safety of her 12-year-old son.

“It’s terrifying because it doesn’t matter if you have, or you don’t,” Scott said of raising her son in America’s racial climate. “All that matters is that you’re brown. That’s it.”

She explained “Just to know that he will be on the road, just to know that he will be away from people that love him in a world that will decide whether he’s guilty of something because he’s brown. That’s terrifying. It makes me consider leaving this place often.”

Scott went on to explain “Just to know that he will be on the road, just to know that he will be away from people that love him in a world that will decide whether he’s guilty of something because he’s brown. That’s terrifying. It makes me consider leaving this place often.”
