    Grammy-winning R&B singer James Ingram has died at age 66, according to multiple media reports. The news was first reported by Tuesday by Ingram's longtime friend and creative partner Debbie Allen on social media.

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

    The exact details of when or how Ingram died are unknown.

    According to Billboard.com Ingram won two Grammy awards during his career: His song "One Hundred Ways" won best male R&B performance in 1981 and his duet with Michael McDonald on "Yah Mo B There" won best R&B performance by a duo or group with vocals in 1984. Ingram was also nominated for back-to-back best original song Oscars in 1993 and 1994, for co-writing "The Day I Fall in Love" from Beethoven's 2nd and "Look What Love Has Done" from Junior.

    Please, bruh, I’m from Ohio. Although known more for the rock of Devo, Chrissie Hynde, and Joe Walsh of the Eagles, that part of my home state gave us Ingram, the O’Jays, and Howard Hewett. Take that, you New Yawker ( jk). You were in diapers when I was listening to Ingram in high school, lol.

    Although I’m mostly a Jeffrey Osborne guy...

    He also wrote PYT. I'm surprised that doesn't get brought up more. He and his brother are (/were) great talents.
