Percy Tyrone Sledge (November 25, 1941 – April 14, 2015) was an American R&Bsoul and gospel singer. He is best known for the song “When a Man Loves a Woman“, a No. 1 hit on both the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B singles charts in 1966. It was awarded a million-selling, Gold-certified disc from the RIAA.

Having previously worked as a hospital orderly in the early 1960s, Sledge achieved his strongest success in the late 1960s and early 1970s with a series of emotional soul songs. In later years, Sledge received the Rhythm and Blues Foundation‘s Career Achievement Award. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.
