We were saddened to hear that B.J. Thomas passed away Saturday at the age of 78 after a battle with lung cancer. We’re taking a look back at his long successful career.
Thomas was best known for his smash “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head” from the movie “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” which became his first #1 hit.
Thomas also hit big with a1968 cover of Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and “Hooked On A Feeling,” which hit the Top Five.
He won five Grammy Awards, all for his gospel music. He will certainly be missed.
