BiographyA crooner with a voice like butter after a day in the July sun, Jesse Belvin is the underappreciated, largely forgotten Soul singer who wrote a slew of songs, appeared on a heap of albums and, sadly, sold most of his rights away. Before he was killed in an auto accident in 1959 -- just as his star approached the skies -- Belvin had been pegged as the next Nat King Cole. His potential may never have been realized, but his staggering body of work and songwriting credit proves he deserved the title.
