The legendary Percy Sledge is dealing with some serious health issues and several of his friends are getting together to put together a benefit for him this Sunday from 4pm to 9pm at Pat's Atchafalaya Club in Henderson.

The musical line-up includes Blue Eyed Soul Revue with Tony O., Warren Storm, Willie T & Cypress with guest Jivin' Gene Bourgeois, TK Hulin & Smoke with G. G. Shinn, Charlene Howard, Steve Adams, Gregg Martinez and Steve Grisaffe.

Funny man Murray Conque will be the master of ceremony and, as billed, there will be a "very special surprise guest".

The 73-year-old Percy Sledge is best known for his 1966 signature hit "When a Man Loves a Woman" plus other big tunes like "Warm and Tender Love", "It Tears Me Up", "Out of Left Field" and "Take Time to Know Her".

Percy is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Rhythm & Blues Foundation’s first Career Achievement Award, as well as the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame.

There is a $20 donation to attend. Pat's Atchafalaya Club is located at 1008 Henderson Levee Road in Henderson.
