I just found out that Bobby Farrell, one of the greatest performers of all time, died last week.

An Aruba-born singer and performer, he was best known as the front man of 1970s group Boney M.  With fearless stage presence and killer dance moves, he’s influenced many throughout the years.  I wanted to pay tribute.

Footage of Bobby Farrell continues to amaze me.  Check out this video, and you’ll understand why:!
