The passing of Richie Havens
By Helen ~ April 23, 2013
We are indeed saddened to hear of the passing of eTown friend Richie Havens. He was a sweet, present, kind-hearted, gracious and elegant man. He will forever be remembered, both for his incredible music (so many recognize him as an iconic symbol of Woodstock – who can forget his improvised song ‘Freedom’) and for his work with underprivileged youth, for which he received many acknowledgements and awards, including the E-Chievement Award.
Travel safe, Richie. The world is a lesser place without you.
