From CNN:

    LONDON, England (Reuters) — U.S.-born soul singer Edwin Starr — best known for his anti-conflict song “War” — has died at the age of 61, his manager Lilian Kyle said on Thursday.

    In a statement on Starr’s official Web site, Kyle said the singer had died following a heart attack at his home near Nottingham, central England.

    It was not clear when the singer passed away.

    One of the first artists to be signed to the Motown record label, Starr had been making records since the 1950s. A long-term resident of Britain, he was best-known for enduring hits “War” and “Contact.”

    Edwin Starr, our President, our Prime Minister, our Pope, our Savior, is dead. May He rest in peace.
    Peace, love and understanding, darling — there must be a place for these things today.
    They say we must fight to keep our freedom
    But Lord, there’s got to be a better way.
