’80s R&B Singer Colonel Adams Dead At 67

If you were a fan of the song “Trapped” by Colonel Adams, now would be a great to revisit the track and celebrate the life of the singer who died on Thanksgiving at the age of 67.

“The musician scored his biggest hits with the club singles “Trapped” and “I’m Not Gonna Let You,” which both hit number 1,” according to Essence.

“After it was revealed that Abrams was homeless last year, New York City’s premier soul music radio station, WBLS  launched a fundraising campaign to help him obtain vital diabetes medication.”

According to the report, Adams was born in Detroit but moved to New York when he was just 10-years-old. Adams revealed that his influences came from all of the people on Motown before moving to New York where he combined street music with Motown sounds.

“DJ Tony ‘Tune’ Herbert, who performed at the fundraiser, confirmed Abrams’ death in a somber Facebook post on Saturday evening,” according to Essence.

Unfortunately, not all the musical hitmakers of the ’80s have been able to push their careers further. While Adams is gone, his music will still exist long after. You can check out Colonel Adams’ “Trapped” music video below. Were you a Colonel Adams fan? Let us know in the comments section below.
