Rest in Peace - James Ingram

[ Edited ]

 

Variety reports that R&B singer James Ingram has passed away at the young age of 66. 

 

Longtime friend Debbie Allen confirmed the news on Twitter. “I have lost my dearest friend and creative partner James Ingram to the Celestial Choir,” she wrote. “He will always be cherished, loved and remembered for his genius, his love of family and his humanity. I am blessed to have been so close. We will forever speak his name.”

 

His first No. 1 pop hit was 1982’s “Baby, Come to Me,” a duet with Patti Austin. He again topped the chart in 1990 with “I Don’t Have the Heart.”

He was well known for his soundtrack work, most notably a duet with Linda Ronstadt on “Somewhere Out There,” for the 1986 animated film “An American Tail.” It reached No. 2 on the pop chart and won the Grammy for Song of the Year (with the award going to songwriters James Horner and Cynthia Weil).

Wasn"t Baby Come to Me used in General Hospital in the 80's?

Another talented man gone too soon. I hadn't seen or heard anything about him in a while. It was most noticeable when there was a recent tribute to Quincy Jones and he was not there.

 

A favorite song of his:  Just Once

 

"And suddenly you just know it's time to start something new
And trust the magic of Beginnings..."
