With a little help from their friends, they are coming together to keep his legacy and music alive. The voice that will carry Joe’s message is a wonderful young singer from England, Elliott Tuffin.
Elliot a huge fan of Joe Cocker’s and a great singer in his on right had posted some material on Facebook. Cliff happened to walk by as his wife SueAnn was playing a song. He thought it was Joe then he thought no that couldn’t be. It was Elliott Tuffin! They had found the guy that could get it done.
