Teddy Pendergrass, who defined Philadelphia Soul with smooth, baritone voice in 1970s, died at 59. He was perhaps best remembered as a member of Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes. Teamed with one of the best sound producer duo of soul music Kenny Gamble Leon Huff and their record label Philadelphia International Record Label in 1972, they have created “Philly Soul” sound with hits including “If You Don’t Know Me By Now” in 1972, “The Love I lost” in 1973, and “Wake Up Everybody” in 1975.

In 1976, Pendergrass quits the group in 1976, and began to pursue solo career. Again, Pendergrass continues to release hit singles such as “The More I Get More I Want”, “Close the Door”, and “Turn Off The Lights”.
