Singer-songwriter whose hit "Sunny" climbed the charts in the U.S., sold more than one million copies, and has been covered by countless artists.
He performed on a country TV show, which earned him an invitation to play with Roy Acuff, the star of the Grand Ole Opry.
He recorded "That's All I Wanna Know" in 2005 after thirty-five years of silence.
Both his mother and father were blind musicians and he started out performing in a dance group with his brother at the age of three.
Among the artists who covered Hebb's songs were Frankie Valli; he released two versions of "Sunny."
