RIP Christopher Williams

This is such a shock. All I remember is how crazy the women used to go over him. Especially when we, I mean the light skin brothers were in. he also has a very good voice and was a little underrated as an artist.


Subject: FW: Singer Christopher Williams dead at age 38



Contemporary soul singer Christopher Williams died today in his

Atlanta

home after a brief illness. The cause of death is not known. He was

best

known for his role in the movie "New Jack City and hit single from the

soundtrack, "Dreaming."



Williams released his CW debut in 1987 which Williams turned gold and

reached number one. His 1993 album (Changes) featured the hits "Every

Little Thing" and "Come Go with Me." 1995's Not a Perfect Man brought a



new

direction for Williams; his first album as sole executive producer

uses

elements of reggae, R&B, hip-hop and country. ~ John Bush, All Music

Guide.



Williams remained out of the public spotlight spending most of his time

in

and around his Atlanta home. He was only 38 years old. Arrangements

have

not been made public.

And, if this is false, I extremely apologize. This was sent to me by someone who had it forwarded to them on a govern,ment email.

I would love to find out that this is untrue and Chris is just doing his thing and working on new music.

I think it's just pathetic that people would make up rumors about death, I just don't understand that?

Again, I apolize if this is untrue.

Christopher Williams is a distant cousin of mine and I haven't heard anything in the fam about his passing confused When I called a relative who would definitely know, she was dumbfounded....but did mention the neither she or her husband have talked to him in a few weeks. She did, however, mention that he was battling an illness, but that was all she knew neutral


Not sure about this one...will keep you all posted if I hear anything


Smooches;)

I heard he died due to an infection from a wound he received.

It seems as if some dude with awful hair and bad taste in music stabbed Chris in the hand while smirking, "pretty mutha****, I never liked you anyway."

Hope it's just a rumor.
