It’s with a heavy heart that I report James Ingram has passed away after battling a form of brain cancer.

Grammy Award-winning R&B singer and songwriter was 66.

Debbie Allen took to social media to mourn the passing of her dear friend writing:

I have lost my dearest friend and creative partner James Ingram to the Celestial Choir.

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.❤️

See her original post below.


James’ voice was absolutely magical!

Below I’ve shared two of my all-time favorite James Ingram records.




Rest in paradise.
