K C White, the Jamaican singer best known for covering hits like “First Cut Is The Deepest” has sadly passed away. The passionate singer died last week in his home parish of Portland. According to reports, Inner Circle Band member and K C’s friend, Ian Lewis, said the singer was ill for some time before his death. There is no word on the nature of his illness nor for how long specifically he was fighting for his life.

In the early 1970s, K C moved to the United States, where he pursued his career in music. At the time, he worked with the largest reggae music recording label in the Bronx, New York called “Brad’s Records” where he produced songs like “We Need More Love.”
White continued to create reggae music with other labels like Zola Zola, a French company, and he released a total of four albums in his career.
