The Mighty Pope (funk, soul)

The Mighty Pope (born Earle Heedram; October 23, 1945) is a Jamaican-Canadian funk and soul singer. Known for his vocal strength (hence the "Mighty" prefix in his stage handle) and sharp visual presentation, he was marketed as a something of a "sex symbol" at the height of his recording career in the mid-to-late 1970s. After fronting minor combos Ram  and the Wild Oats (unrecorded), Pope eventually went solo and saw greater commercial success. Thanks to non-stop touring, Pope continued to gain recognition and adoration. By the mid-seventies, his dynamic stage act caught the attention of RCA Records Canada, who released his self-titled The Mighty Pope soul LP in 1977.
