Sad news to report today.

Little Richard has died at the age of 87-years-old.

The cause of death has not been announced, but his son did announce his passing. Little Richard was a pioneer in the Rock and Roll music industry.

Little Richard, Richard Wayne Penniman, was known for hits like “Tutti Frutti,” “Long Tall Sally,” and “Lucille."

He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and his influence on the music industry goes back decades. So many huge artists and bands say it was Little Richard who influenced them to pursue their dream in music.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this very difficult time.
