Bryan Adams, Ringo Starr, and a wealth other singers and celebrities paid tribute to the late Joe Cocker, who died Monday at the age of 70. The singer died following a battle with cancer. He is best known for his 1974 hit song, ‘You Are So Beautiful.’
Joe Cocker collaborated with Jennifer Warnes on his only hit to surpass ‘You Are So Beautiful.’ ‘Up Where We Belong’ was a quick chart climber–reaching the number one spot on the Billboard charts–in 1982.

As Bryan Adams said in his tweet, Joe Cocker was one of the best rock singers ever. Hopefully the family members and close friends he leaves behind find some solace in the words that each of these singers/musicians has expressed in an effort to ease just a tiny bit of their pain.
