Howard Tate Dies at 72

"Howard Tate, one of soul music's shining voices, died Friday, Dec. 2, succumbing to lung cancer after a long battle. He was 72.

Tate enjoyed a briefly successful career in the late 1960s and early 1970s, recording hits like 'Get It While You Can,' before sliding into obscurity, where he toiled for decades. He first achieved success in 1966 with the single 'Ain't Nobody Home,' and as he told NPR, success took him by surprise."
