Soooo sad to see that singer Teddy Pendergrass has died. I'll never forget his concerts in London when I was a student 1978-1982. Apart from his amazing voice, the memorable thing about him was his courage when he rebuilt his life after a car accident that left him in a wheelchair, and the example he set for people finding themselves in similar situations. I love the lyrics of that song he sang, 'Life is a song worth singing'. Seems he had to prove this in such a hard way, but he did. Got me thinking about other people who have put all their energy into triumphing over problems. Remember that film 'The Pursuit of Happyness', about the guy who never gave up struggling in spite of a string of disasters? There's Christopher Reeve, also wheelchair-bound, and Isaac Heyes, clawing his way back after bancrupcy. Anyone think of any others?
