Soul legend James Brown is dead.
The agent for the singer says Brown died early this morning at a hospital in Atlanta. He was admitted Sunday, suffering from pneumonia.
Brown was scheduled to perform at least three shows this week. Earlier, his agent announced two of those shows were being canceled because of his hospitalization, but that Brown was expecting to perform this weekend.
Brown was in Augusta Friday for his annual toy giveaway.
He was 73 years old.
