R.I.P: Nick Ashford of Ashford & Simpson Passes Away

Filed under : Music

Hey Guys!


“Solid! As a rock. That’s what love is…”

I know my mom & most of her peers are grieving over this….

Nick Ashford. A legend. An Icon. May he rest in peace & Valerie Simpson be comforted in love.

According to USA Today:

His longtime friend and former publicist Liz Rosenberg told the Associated Press that Ashford — who along with wife Valerie Simpson wrote some of Motown’s biggest hits — died Monday in a New York City hospital. He had been suffering from throat cancer and had undergone radiation treatment.

Among the songs Ashford & Simpson penned are Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, You’re All I Need To Get By and Reach Out And Touch Somebody’s Hand.

He is survived by his wife and two daughters.

Rest Well Nick!
