His Songs Will Always Be Played On The Stoop

Imagine you are a famous singer, and you've sold millions of records. Imagine further that at age 31, you are in a car accident that leaves you paralyzed from the chest down. Would you have the courage to make your first public singing appearance since the accident in front of 90,000 fans @ JFK Stadium in Philly, plus a billion or so watching the famous Live Aid Concert on television?

The great Teddy Pendergrass, who passed away Wednesday, had that type of courage.

Watch the incredibly moving performance below.
