Percy Sledge, the voice behind the legendary soul track “When A Man Loves a Woman,” has died, his representatives at Artists International Management confirmed Tuesday.

The coroner in East Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where Sledge lived, told The Associated Press he died Tuesday morning.

The details of Sledge’s death were not immediately available. He had been treated last year for liver cancer, a diagnosis that spurred a benefit concert last September.
