Soul and reggae singer-songwriter Johnny Nash has died of natural causes, aged 80.
Born in Houston, Texas, Nash was one of the first non-Jamaicans to make reggae music in Kingston, and scored a huge international hit with 1972’s “I Can See Clearly Now”.
Nash was a big supporter of Bob Marley in his early career, covering several of his songs and bringing Marley to London in 1972 where the pair played a concert together at a Peckham school.
Nash also had a No. 1 hit in the UK in 1975 with “Tears On My Pillow”.
