Errol Brown, the lead singer of the British group Hot Chocolate passed away today at his home in the Bahamas.
Hot Chocolate singer Errol Brown, best known for the 1975 international smash You Sexy Thing, died Wednesday of liver cancer. He was 71.
Brown’s manager, Phil Dale, told the BBC that the Jamaica-born singer died at his home in the Bahamas.
Though You Sexy Thing has proved the most enduring Hot Chocolate hit, the group had five top-40 pop hits between 1975 and 1979. Three of those — 1975’s Emma, You Sexy Thing and 1978’s Every 1’s a Winner — reached the top 10.
Hot Chocolate’s biggest single is You Sexy Thing. While You Sexy Thing is their most popular song my favorite is Emma.
Every 1’s a Winner was another big hit for Hot Chocolate.
Errol is survived by his wife and two daughters. RIP Errol Brown.
