Edwin Starr

Edwin Starr (born Charles Edwin Hatcher; January 21, 1942 – April 2, 2003) was an American singer and songwriter. Starr was famous for his Norman Whitfield-produced Motown singles of the 1970s, most notably the number one hit “War”.

Starr was born in Tennessee and raised in Ohio, and later lived in Detroit while singing for Ric Tic and Motown Records. He was backed by the band that would later become known as “Black Merda”. Hawkins and Veasey of the group played on most of his early hits on the Ric Tic Label. Besides “War”, Starr’s songs “25 Miles” and “Stop the War Now” were also major successes in the 1960s. Starr’s career shifted to the United Kingdom in the 1970s, where he continued to produce music, living there until his death
