James Brown Fights For The Mother Who Gave Him Up

Soul superstar JAMES BROWN is refusing to take doctor's advice switch off his ailing mother's support machine - because its up to God to decide when she passes away.

The 70-year-old soul legend's ailing mum is fighting for her life after slipping into a coma last month (DEC03).

Machines are keeping SUSAN BROWN alive, and her son is keeping a constant vigil over her - even though she abandoned him when he was four and left her sister to raise him.

The soul star says, "They want me to say, 'OK, switch off the machines,' but I won't. It's for God to decide if she lives or dies."
