Soul singer Howard Tate has died in his New Jersey apartment a decade after a career resurrection that followed years of tragedy and obscurity.
Soul singer Howard Tate, who got a second chance at a musical career three decades after being derailed by disputes with industry executives, personal tragedy and drug addiction, has died at age 72.
"I got rid of my own records, and I didn't listen to other people's records because I didn't want to flash back," he told The Associated Press in a 2003 interview.
Tate said he believed it was "a call from God" that brought him back to the music industry he had "hated and despised so bad."
