Very shocking. I hadn't seen or heard from him in a while. Another great R&B legend gone. RIP.

I liked his part at the end of this. Great voice. One day I hope there will be a cure for brain cancer.

From Kim Fields-Freeman's social media, Kim played Tootie on Facts of Life and Regine on Living Single sitcoms, posted this incredible image:

Caption:

#wbw honoring #JamesIngram this is from the recording of Michael Jackson’s PYT which James wrote w/ #quincydjones . #janetjackson invited#mindycohn & I to the session. As I said yesterday after hearing of James’s passing... I have a small collection of memories of him and his fam. This is the first one. #music #pyt #blessedlife

in addition to his amazing voice,James also wrote some great songs.He co-wrote "P.Y.T (Pretty Young Thing)" for Michael Jackson and he also plays the keys on Carl Carlton's funky 1981 smash hit "She's A Bad Mama Jama".

As much a dynamic singer Ingram was, he too was a brilliant musician. One of his contributions was in teaming on the classic R&B "A Night to Remember" by Shalamar.

When I attended the Quincy Jones tribute late last year I wondered why JAMES didn’t show up to do his duet “Baby Come To Me” with Patti Austin(whom brilliantly mimicked JAMES part of the duet) now I know why.

Quincy said at his premier of his documentary(another event I was in attendance)that All his friends(including Prince) has passed away.

I feel the same. sad
So Prince, whom fought 4 his first record deal & got it, fought 4 a movie deal & got it, fought 4 freedom from his WB contract & got it, fought 4 his masters & got them.Gets a curable illness & says 2 himself ok, I'm done. "Life is a Box Of Chocolates"

100 Ways...

You want some funk? Better Way... I think it was from one of the Beverly Hilly Cop soundtracks... I loved it. I turned a white guy on to R&B through this 80's R&B song. Great talent. I was wondering where we was for the Quincy thing.

Sudden and sad.
