Johnny Nash, American Reggae musician dies at 80


JOHNNY Nash, American reggae and pop singer-songwriter, is dead. Nash, best known for his 1972 hit ‘I Can See Clearly Now,’ died at the age of 80 years.

Nash, whose health had been in decline, died at his home of natural causes on Tuesday, his son told US media. The musician began singing as a child and made his major label debut with the 1957 song A Teenager Sings the Blues.

Nash, born in Houston, was one of the first non-Jamaican singers to record reggae music in Kingston, Jamaica. His single I Can See Clearly Now sold more than a million copies and reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1972, where it remained for four weeks.

He also had a number one hit in the UK in 1975 with Tears on My Pillow.
