Paul Blake (19 October 1965 – 18 May 2017), better known as Frankie Paul, was a Jamaican dancehall reggae artist. Born blind, he has been dubbed by some 'The Jamaican Stevie Wonder'. Born in Jamaica in 1965, Blake was born blind but as a child had his sight partially restored by an operation on a hospital ship. He sang for, and impressed Stevie Wonder when Wonder visited the school that Blake attended, prompting him to pursue a singing career. Adopting the stage name Frankie Paul, he first found fame in the early 1980s, and he recorded prolifically throughout the decade. He has recorded for virtually every producer and studio in Jamaica at some time, and has been known to release several albums a year. Notable works of Frankie Paul include the popular "Sara" and "Worries in the Dance". Paul has resided in Gambia since 1994.

In January 2016 he underwent surgery to amputate a foot and part of his leg. Frankie Paul died on 18 May 2017 at the University Hospital of the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica. Citation "Frankie Paul has a voice that improves with each release and, although initially compared with Dennis Brown, he has evolved a strange nasal, throaty style that makes him sound much older. It's the sheer exuberance of his best performances that give away his youthfulness, and his two London appearances have been joyous occasions." - NME (4 May 1985) Discography Albums Give The Youth A Chance (1982), Freedom Sounds - also released as Rich & Poor Pass the Ku-Sheng Peng (1985) Nyam Up Tidal Wave - (1985) - Greensleeves Over the Wall (1985) Crystal Still Alive (1985) Jammy's Shut Up Bway (1986) Ujama Sara (1987) Jammy's (JA) / Live & Love (UK/US) Warning (1987) RAS Alesha - (1987) Fire Deh a Mus Tail (1988) Blacka Dread Dance Hall Duo (1988) RAS Slow Down (1988) VP Frankie Paul at Studio One (1988) Studio One Veteran (1989) VP Reaching Out (1989), Blue Mountain Can't Get You Out of My Mind (1990) Rohit Detrimental (1990) Rohit Get Closer (1990) Profile Start of Romance (1991) Sonic Sounds Best in Me (1991), VP Let's Chill (1991) VP Jamming (1991) VP Should I (1991) Heartbeat Money Talk (1991) Jammy's Sleepless Night (1992) Sonic Sounds Hot Number (1992) VP Tomorrow (1992) Sonic Sounds Cassanova (1992) Dynamic Sounds Live & Love (1992) VP Sizzling (1992) VP Don Man (1993) Philo Talk All You Want (1994) VP Hard Work(1994) RAS Time Less (1995) Tan-yah If You Want Me Girl (1995) Trojan Come Back Again (1996) VP Freedom (1996) RAS A We Rule (1997) RAS Live at Maritime Hall (1999) Artists Only Give Me That Feeling Freedom Blues (1999) Foxtail Forever (1999) World Rock On (1999) Charm Every Nigger Is a Star!
