Womack, whose singing career has spanned more than 50 years with a repertoire that includes hits such as “Across 110th Street,” “Lookin’ for A Love” and “Harry Hippie,” has had his share of health problems over recent years.

Watch “Lookin’ for a Love” here:

After successfully conquering his addiction to cocaine in the late ’80s, the 68-year-old was diagnosed with diabetes. Last year, he underwent surgery for prostate cancer.  Earlier this year, he dealt with a few bouts of pneumonia.

On Wednesday, performer extraordinaire and funkmeister Bootsy Collins posted on Womack’s Facebook page the following about his latest battle:

“We’re delighted to announce that Bobby Womack has successfully undergone surgery for suspected colon cancer. A tumour [sic] was removed last night which turned out to be cancer free. We wish him all the best in his recovery from the operation. Thank you for all your kind messages and support.”

The latest bit of good news comes just a few weeks before the release of Womack’s first album in 18 years, “The Bravest Man in the Universe.”

Amen to that!
