Miami Music Matters - South Florida's popular music blog put out by the Miami Herald notes the passing of King Coleman this past week.

"The Associated Press reported that legendary R&B singer/Emcee/DJ / Reverend Carlton "King" Coleman passed away this past Saturday. While he was best known for providing the vocals on the 1959 James Nat Kendrick & The Swans (A pseudonym for James Brown's Famous Flames) smash hit "(Do The)Mashed Potatoes" - Coleman's tremendous influence and outsized persona stretched for miles beyond that."
