A New Orleans singing legend is looking great at 75.
Aaron Neville, who celebrated his birthday Sunday, posted a picture of himself on Facebook, along with a poem thanking God for keeping him safe and allowing him to make it to 75.
“Who would have thought --years ago-- that I'd still be alive? God watched over me, kept me safe, and I made it to seventy five,” the post reads.
“When I did things to hurt myself, God would make me whole. Each time He'd wipe away my transgressions and cleanse my soul. He held my hand through some deep, dark days, holding a lantern to light my way.”
Neville will be among the many prominent local artists performing at the 2016 New Orleans Jazz Fest.
In his lengthy career, Neville has found success both as a solo artist and with his brothers Art, Charles and Cyril as The Neville Brothers.
