It was announced that soul singer and actor Isaac Hayes, who won Grammy awards and an Oscar for the theme from the 1971 action film “Shaft,” died on yesterday.
Relatives found Hayes, 65, unconscious in his Tennessee home next to a still-running treadmill, said Steve Schular, a spokesman for the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department. Paramedics attempted to revive him and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 2 p.m., the sheriff’s department said.
Issac Hayes and Bernie Mac, who passed away on Saturday, were to co-star in the upcoming movie Soul Men.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to both the families of Issac Hayes and Bernie Mac.
