(October 6, 2017) We are devastated to inform SoulTrackers of the death of Philadelphia soul legend Walter "Bunny" Sigler at age 76. Few songwriters and performers have influenced a genre like Bunny Sigler.
The Philadelphia native and R&B pioneer was the force behind hits from the 60s and 70s. Instant Funk's "I Got My Mind Made Up," Patti Labelle's "Somebody Loves You Baby," The Whispers' "Bingo," Jackie Moore's "Sweet Charlie Babe," and The O'Jays "Sunshine" all came from the pen of Bunny Sigler.
