B.J. Thomas, the renowned singer of the hit songs “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head” and “(Hey Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song” announced on a social media post that he is diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.
In the statement released on his Twitter account, the singer is currently undergoing treatment in Texas. He also shares a moment to thank his wife, Gloria, and his family, friends, and his fans.
“I’m so blessed to have had the opportunity to record and perform beautiful songs in pop, country, and gospel music, and to share those wonderful songs and memories around the world with millions of you,” he further stated. He also asked for prayers from people for a fast recovery.
Thomas received fame in the 1960s when he began to cover “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” which was originally recorded by Hank Williams. He then began to establish his career when Dionne Warwick recommended the singer to sing “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head” as the main track for the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969).
Thomas, later on, released multiple gospels and country albums that received critical success.
