Remembering Houston native Johnny Nash, singer of iconic ‘I can see clearly now’
HOUSTON – Carlie Nash still has the leather-fringed, bell-bottomed outfits her late husband wore as he performed his greatest hit. Johnny Nash passed away at his southside Houston home on October 6 of natural causes, according to his family. “It was a song mixed with soul, rocksteady, ska and a positive message,” said his son, John Nash III. Johnny Nash started singing at age four at Progressive New Hope Baptist Church. “My dad said, ‘You need a bigger stage so come with me,’” John Nash III said.
