Whispers founding member Nicholas Caldwell passes

Founding member of the R&B group The Whispers Nicholas Caldwell has died.

The whispers credited with songs such as It’s A love Thing, I’m Gonna Make You My Wife, with their two most recognizable songs being Rock Steady and And The Beat Goes On a disco flavored hit.

For over a half century Nicolas Caldwell’s smooth vocals caused women to swoon as one of the founding voices in the R&B group The Whispers.

Caldwell died on Tuesday from congestive heart failure following years of battling heart problems. When his health issues forced him to stop performing, Caldwell posted a Facebook message to fans to explain that his heart problems had worsened, but he still shared his optimism for recovery saying:
“It has been my experience that speculation can be far worse than the truth. So I thought it was important to write you (My Family of Fans) an explanation as to why I have not been able to join the Whispers on stage over the past months.

In January of this year… my cardiology team at Stanford University Hospital were all in agreement that my congestive heart failure had deteriorated to the point that they thought I had 3 to 6 months to live.

So, my family and I decided it best that I take advantage of a relatively new technology called an LVAD (Left Ventricular Assist Device), which if successful could extend my life expectancy by years.

So, thanks to God and all of you beloved prayer warriors out there I’m on a wonderful journey to recovery. Hope to see you soon.

“May you live as long as you want and never want as long as you live.”

God Speed, Love Nick”

It was the last love letter Caldwell would get to share with his fans who have remained loyal since he and his group first began singing.

RIP Nick.
