The rock and roll legend, Little Richard, has passed away at the age of 87, US media reported Saturday, quoting his son.
Rolling Stone and the New York Times reported that Little Richard, the owner of popular songs such as “Totti Fruity” and “Good Jolly, Miss Molly,” died today Saturday, according to his son Danny Bennemann. The location or cause of his death has not been revealed.
The former former first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, singer Patti Smith, and others, mourned the late rock and roll legend as soon as news of the death came.
The news came after years of predicting Little Richard’s health after undergoing thigh surgery.
Richard Wayne Bennemann was born on December 5, 1932 in Macon, Georgia, and drew the attention of the public 65 years ago with the song “Tutti Frutti” and others.
Little Richard, known for his active presence on the stage, helped lay the foundations of rock and roll music in the 1950s, and influenced everyone from Elvis Presley to The Beatles and Prince.
Richard was nicknamed “Little” because he was little in his childhood.
