Crooner Bobby Womack, whose cancer of the prostate and colon rocked the world of vintage soul music lovers everywhere, received a clean bill of health from his medical team last month.  Now his doctors have green-lighted his plans of touring the globe to promote his new album, reports the BBC.

After an 18-year absence from the recording studio, Womack just released an album, The Bravest Man in the Universe, and is anxious to “let people know what soul singing really was about,” he told the BBC.

Womack has had a rough way to go over the last few years, yet he has persevered through tragedy and addiction.  He battled cocaine in the 80’s.  Health problems began to come at the performer in rapid-fire succession — first diabetes, followed by prostate cancer, severe bouts of pneumonia, a collapsed lung, colon cancer and seizures.  Womack was a very sick man for a very long time.

When he toured back in 2010 as a guest vocalist with the British band Gorillaz, he didn’t want to reveal to them how sick he actually was.  “I didn’t want to tell them that I was having these seizures and I was losing my sight because I’d seen this was an opportunity to sing with these guys and I really liked being around them. This was a break for me,” said the 68-year-old.

Womack’s current album is his first since “Resurrection” which he released back in 1994.  Even though he has battled horrific drug demons and his pilot light almost went out a few times, the man whose career has spanned over 50 years is adamant about the fact that “I sing better today than I did 20 years ago,” he contends.

Doctors have told Womack to take one day at a time and to not rush back into the swing of things, but he is hyped and excited about touring again. Feeling brand new, the legendary artist has already booked several live tour dates.

It looks like “Daylight” is gonna catch him up again and again!
