Ellington 'Fugi' Jordan

Ellington "Fugi"  Jordan has been making music for years with legendary artists.  He wrote the song, "I'd Rather Go Blind, which has been recorded over the years by the likes of Etta James, Fleetwood Mac, B.B King, The Noel Redding Band, Rod Stewart, and Beyonce to name a few. He was also a member of the psychedelic funk group "Black Merda",  a band that has been such a musical inspiration that even Ja'Rule sampled some of their material. Jimi Hendrix and Creedence were close personal friends of Fugi, and to say that his resume is extensive is an understatement.  But for those that knew him, he never needed an introduction because he always dominated any room he was in. However, today we are asking everyone if they could please donate any amount you can, to help with his memorial services. Any donations will be much appreciated by his family and friends. 

Ellington " Fugi" Jordan:  " I never want to write something for myself.  I don't want to just be known as a songwriter , but rather a contributor to someone's life."

And to so many, he did just that!
