Soul/Gospel singer Merry Clayton was hospitalized after a serious car accident in Los Angeles last week.
Clayton, who sang backup for Ray Charles and The Rolling Stones, AND one of the principal subjects of the Academy Award winning film 20 Feet From Stardom, was injured on Monday of last week. Oh no.
A website posting confirmed the accident and read as followed, unedited by us: "Merry was involved in a major automobile accident. Merry sustained severe injuries to her lower body, including major trauma to her lower extremities. We are truly grateful that our dear Merry is still with us."
So while she was seriously hurt, Clayton is still alive and for that we are incredibly grateful!
We send our VERY best to Merry Clayton. She is in our thoughts and our prayers.
