    Soul singer Percy Sledge dies aged 73




    Percy Sledge died at home in Baton RougeUS soul singer Percy Sledge, famed for his song When a Man Loves a Woman, has died aged 73.
    Steve Green from talent agency Artists International Management Inc confirmed to the BBC that he had died at his home in Baton Rouge on Tuesday morning.
    "He was one of my first acts, he was a terrific person and you don't find that in this business very often," said Green. "He was truly a standout."
    When a Man Loves a Woman reached the top 10 twice in the UK.
    It topped the US Billboard chart for two weeks in 1966, when it got to number four in the UK chart. It reached number two when it was re-released in the UK in 1987. Later this week it will be the 49th anniversary of the song's release.
    Sledge is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Alabama Music Hall of Fame.
