One thing (among many) that the COVID Crisis has made painfully clear is that black lives DON’T matter when those “vaccines” take them.

Hear, and heed, what Marvin Gaye sings in the first verse of his 1971 classic (scroll down for it).

One of our saddest jobs at SoulTracks is to inform SoulTrackers about the deaths of soul music artists. And 2022 is a year in which we’ve already lost some great ones.

We feel it is part of our mission to pay tribute to the legacies of these all time greats. On this page we provide a list of those artists who have died during 2022, and a link to our tributes to them. They are shown in the order of the date we reported on their deaths during the year.
