He was 76 years old.

King first rose to stardom as the singer of the timeless doo-wop group The Drifters before leaving for a lucrative solo career of his own.

He released Stand By Me in 1961 and it quickly became a US top five hit and also inspired a totally amazing movie later on down the line.

Fellow legendary musician Gary US Bonds took to Facebook to offer up a tribute to his friend. He wrote:

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, acting "couply and cuddly" while attending at the Philadelphia 76ers-Miami Heat game with their children in Pennsylvania, and going even as far to kiss her for the "kiss cam" screen!

Glad to hear that these two seem to be on the mend!

Sophia Loren Lends Her Voice To Cars 2 In Non-English Speaking Countries

sophia loren joins disneys cars 2 in non english speaking countries

Anyone planning to see Cars 2 while abroad is going to be in for a real treat!

Last month, legendary actress Sophia Loren was honored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Hollywood with a wonderful tribute ceremony.

Now, Sophia will make her mark with kids in non-English speaking countries in the role of Mama Topolino in Disney's Cars sequel.

Those of us in English speaking countries will still be treated to Vanessa Redgrave's voice in the role, which should still be great…but admittedly, we'd love to get our hands on that other version as well!

So inspiring to see Sophia keeping so active at 76-years-old! VERY impressive!

sophia loren gets honored

What a lovely gesture!

Yesterday, legendary actress Sophia Loren was honored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Hollywood with a tribute ceremony, after having also received a lifetime achievement Oscar back in 1991.

Here's what Sophia had to say while at the Academy's tribute ceremony for the actress:

"The Academy Award changed my life completely. It helped me to believe in myself and encouraged me to push my own artistic boundaries."

"There are no words to describe my emotions right now. It is hard to imagine that 50 years have passed since I welcomed my Oscar to my home."

Speeches at the ceremony were given by Tom Hanks, Sophia's Nine director Rob Marshall, and her son Edoardo Ponti who said the following about his mother:

"We are here because we love you and you deserve every single thing."

So sweet. She's accomplished SO MUCH and looks A-MAZING at 76 years old!!!

Congratulations, Sophia! We're very happy for you!
