I know at least one other member that's hurting about this one besides myself, but James Ingram, an R&B legend during the 1980s with "Just Once" (one of my favourite R&B songs period), "Somewhere Out There" (a duet with Linda Ronstadt) and "Baby Come to Me" (a duet with Patty Austin) passed away today at age 66 due to a bout with brain cancer. Such a magical voice is gone too soon.

I'm one of those members hurting right now.  Right before learning of the bad news, I was just came across some of his minor hits and was like this guy is underrated

While many wouldn't put Mr. Ingram at or near the top of their lists or playlists (partially due to the era we're in), whenever his songs came onto my playlist or the radio or music apps, it was must-listen music.  Agree on Just Once being a top hit (pretty much all his work with Quincy Jones).  Loved his late 80s/early 90s hits "I Don't Have The Heart" and his duet with Michael McDonald of Doobie Brothers fame (Yah Mo Be There).  That's just to name a few out of a lot of his work.  RIP, James Ingram.

'80s R&B in general is underrated outside of the obvious pop crossovers (Michael Jackson, Prince, Whitney Houston, which we still miss today), and many of these acts perform at "jazz" festivals, further giving this music its rather "stogy" label. Sandwiched between the great '50s-'70s "classic" period and the '90s-now "contemporary" period, it  Sadly, in terms of "80s black music", most people focus on early hip-hop and those few crossovers that I've mentioned, and of course the MTV pop/rock still popular for people generally of a certain age. It was already seen as "bygone" as early as the late '90s, with its "quiet storm" dominated feel with early synths and drum machines that led to its rather dated feel, no matter how many traditional instruments were used, and a lot of soap opera cues and love themes of the '80s/'90s incorporated this style of music. We've still got Mr. McDonald, Jeffrey Osbourne, Peabo Bryson, George Benson, and many more from that era with us.

RIP Mr. Ingram (no relation to Luther who passed on in 2007).
