Backtrack: Black – Wonderful Life

So sad to report the death of Colin Vearncombe, AKA Black, known to many for two big hits in 1987 with Sweetest Smile and Wonderful Life.

Liverpool-born Vearncombe, 53, had a devoted following of fans built up over a 35-year music career. He was seriously injured in a car crash two weeks ago near Cork airport, Ireland, and had since been kept in an induced coma but his passing was announced this evening.

We’ve picked a stripped back performance of Wonderful Life which shows off a unique voice and musical talent who will be much missed:
