We have learned that Nathaniel “Pedro” Lewis passed away in Memphis on April 10th, 2013. As a member of The Ovations, he delighted many soul fans throughout the world. Working with Louis Williams and William Young, they recorded two albums at Sounds of Memphis Studio and numerous tracks that didn’t make the cuts.
Two great albums have been released by Ace Records in the UK – “The Ovations Featuring Louis Williams: The Complete Sounds of Memphis Albums” and “One in a Million: The XL and Sounds of Memphis Recordings“.
Pedro was the last surviving member of The Ovations. We hope their legacy lives on with these releases and the world hears what a great Memphis soul group The Ovations were.
