Interestingly, Nash’s most popular song, I Can See Clearly Now, was said to have been written by the music star after he recovered from cataract surgery.

Covers of the song were later made by many artistes including the legendary Ray Charles, Donny Osmond and Jimmy Cliff.

Despite the success of the I Can See Clearly Now song, Nash rarely ever topped charts again and was practically out of the business by the 1990s.

Daily Mail reports that the late singer was married three times and he was survived by his son, daughter and third wife, Carli.
