Afbeeldingsresultaat voor percy sledgePercy Sledge (born November 25, 1941)[1][2] is an American R&B and soul performer who recorded the hit “When a Man Loves a Woman” in 1966. Sledge worked in a series of blue-collar jobs in the fields in Leighton, Alabama before taking a job as an orderly at Colbert County Hospital in Sheffield, Alabama. Through the mid-1960s, he toured the Southeast with the Esquires Combo on weekends, while working at the hospital during the week. A former patient and mutual friend of Sledge and record producer Quin Ivy introduced the two. An audition followed, and Sledge was signed to a recording contract. See for more.
