R&B singer James Ingram has passed away at the age of 66. Ingram has been suffering from brain cancer and he lost his battle with it. Ingram is best for some chart topping hits like “Yah Mo B There” with Michael McDonald, “Somewhere Out There” with Linda Ronstadt, “Better Way” from Beverly Hills Cop II, “100 Ways” and “Just Once.” His soulful singing voice will be missed, especially in the movies where he was on so many soundtracks. F Cancer!
James Ingram, one of the biggest stars in R&B music in the 1980s and ’90s, and a double Grammy winner and two-time Oscar nominee, has died at age 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.”
