James Brown, to be forever known as the Godfather of Soul, has died. Nothing I could write here would do justice to the impact he has had on the lives of Americans and around the world. His influence was felt in Disney pictures including Good Morning Vietnam, My Favorite Martian, and Mr. 3000. He was also a regular fixture on New Years Eve performances.
