Tyrone Davis best known for the classics "Can I Change My Mind" and "Turn Back the Hands of Time" died Feb. 9.

Many music critics praised him for his versatile baritone voice. His smooth sound cold handle everything from pop-soul to funk to blues.

Preston Billings and other music lovers at McLaurin's Club in Winstonville remembered Davis in a more intimate way.

Billings said his brother Eugene was a close friend to Davis. He considered Davis a blood brother to the family.

Davis broke through in the late 1960s and never really stopped recording; although the R&B chart hits dried up by the early 1980s, he was still going strong into the new millennium, decades after his first single was released.
