He was 87. © Hiroyuki Ito for The New York Times Little Richard in performance at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in New York in 2007. “He was crucial,” one historian said, “in upping the voltage from high-powered R&B into the similar, yet different, guise of rock ’n’ roll.” His death was confirmed by his son, Danny Jones Penniman, who said the cause was cancer.

The everyday struggle that little people go through in life. When people say the struggle is real? It’s real. We go through hell and back," she previously told MadameNoire.
