Recommended Posts

Legendary R&B singer JAMES INGRAM has died.  He was only 66 years old.  There's no official word yet when or how he passed away, but TMZ says he was battling brain cancer.



His longtime friend DEBBIE ALLEN made the announcement, saying, quote, "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."





Ingram had plenty of hits over his career, including two Number Ones:  "Baby Come to Me" with Patti Austin in 1983, and "I Don't Have the Heart" in 1990.



His other classics include "Just Once", "Yah Mo Be There" with Michael McDonald, and "Somewhere Out There" with Linda Ronstadt . . . from the movie "An American Tail".  He also co-wrote the Michael Jackson jam "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)".



("Yah Mo Be There" won James one of his two Grammys . . . even though Paul Rudd isn't a fan.  WARNING:  This movie clip contains an F-bomb.)
