First we heard some bad news on yesterday morning about the passing of Soul singer Mel Waiters, and I found out last night that we also lost another great to the entertainment industry.

 

Film star and comedian Reynaldo Rey died Thursday morning at the age of 75 due to complications from a stroke he suffered late last year. Every movie that he was in, he brought the house down and was as funny as any of his counterparts. This is truly shocking news as just over a week ago we lost B.B. King, to Mel Waiters and now Reynaldo. While he never got as much notoriety as Richard Pryor or Eddie Murphy, he was truly one of the greats.

 

Check him out in action doing a few of his comedy routines and you can see that I am not pulling your leg by a long shot. He will be truly missed and we have officially lost another legend in the game. My prayers go out to his family and close friends.
