STATEMENT FROM MAYOR EMANUEL ON THE PASSING OF B.B. KING

 

“B.B. King brought blues from Mississippi to the mainstream. Through his velvety voice and his guitar, Lucille, he influenced the most famous musicians in the world, but more importantly, his music comforted people when they needed it most. Anyone could sing a song about falling in love, but only Mr. King could sing a song about heartbreak. Today, everyone’s hearts are heavier with the passing of the greatest bluesman in history. May he and Lucille continue to play on in eternity.”
