Soul singer and actor Isaac Hayes has died, according to CNN. Relatives found the 65-year-old Grammy & Academy Award winner unconscious in his home next to a still-running treadmill, said Steve Shular, a spokesman for the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department. Paramedics made attempts to revive him and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 2 p.m., the sheriff’s department said. No foul play is suspected.
Isaac Hayes, who is most known for writing the popular theme song to “Shaft,” co-starred alongside Bernie Mac in a new movie titled “Soul Men.” Bernie Mac passed away from pneumonia over Saturday morning.
On behalf of everyone involved with T2W, I would like to express my condolences to the family of Isaac Hayes. Another legend has gone on. He will be missed.
