Joe Cocker Dead - 'You Are So Beautiful' Singer Dies at 70

Joe Cocker has sadly passed away at the age of 70, BBC reports.

The legendary singer died after a long battle with lung cancer, according to his agent Barrie Marshall.

Joe reached fame with his cover of the Beatles song “With a Little Help from My Friends,” which went to number one in the UK in 1968 and was chosen as the theme song to The Wonder Years.

Joe is a Grammy Award winner whose original songs include the classic “You Are So Beautiful” and his number one duet with Jennifer Warnes, “Up Where We Belong.” Another one of his accolades was placing number 97 on Rolling Stone‘s list of the 100 greatest singers ever.
