James Ingram, the Ohio-born R&B singer whose soulful baritone voice dominated the charts throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, has died at the age of 66. Ingram had been suffering from brain cancer.
Over the course of his career, Ingram achieved eight Top 40 hits, two of which — his 1982 duet with Patti Austin, “Baby, Come to Me”, and 1990’s “I Don’t Have the Heart” — went No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Many of his biggest hits were collaborations, including “Somewhere Out There” from the classic animated film An American Tail, which he recorded with Linda Ronstadt, and “Yah Mo B There” featuring Michael McDonald.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
