jacksoul - SOULmateHaydain Neale’s death from lung cancer last month shocked those who knew only that the soul singer had recovered from a serious 2007 traffic accident. Blessed with a heavenly falsetto and huge charisma, Haydain has left fans with a gorgeous album that adds to his lustrous legacy, especially fine new songs like the acoustic gem “Lonesome Highway,” the Motown-sweet “How We Do” and the mellifluous reggae of “You’re Beautiful.” All proceeds from the sale of the CD go to the Haydain Neale Family Trust.
