Stand By Me in the style of Ben E. King

Very sad news today, legendary R&B singer Ben E. King has passed away.

A member of The Five Crowns and The Drifters, Ben E. King co-wrote many of the hit songs that we all still sing at karaoke.  Among such songs is Stand By Me which King co-wrote with Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, and which was voted one of the Songs of the Century by the Recording Association of America.  A 1986 re-issue of the song for the movie of the same title gave King another No. 1 hit on the Billboard Charts (for a total of 5).

In tribute to King, sing along with us:
