Unhappy Singer Al Jarreau (1940-2017)

Link

Seven-time Grammy winner Al Jarreau has died. His passing comes two days after an announcement was made on his website that he was retiring from touring due to exhaustion.

Jarreau had been in a hospital in Los Angeles and was "slowly recovering," according to a statement posted on Thursday. He was 76.

Jarreau died at 5:30 a.m. PT Sunday, according to a statement from his booking agent Bob Zievers. Gordon said in lieu of flowers or gifts, Jarreau's family requested contributions be made to the Wisconsin Foundation for School Music.

Jarreau received a lifetime achievement award from the foundation last fall, and an endowment to benefit Milwauke Public School children needing financial assistance for music programs was established in his name.

First singing at church and PTA meetings when he was four or five, Jarreau told the Journal Sentinel it was at Lincoln High School where " "My love of music and singing really deepened. I began to have ideas of taking this as far as it could go. And I kept dreaming that dream and nourishing that dream."

He took that dream exceptionally far. Jarreau has 20 albums to his name, and is the only Grammy vocalist to win in the jazz, pop and R&B categories. He performed 50 concerts last year, including at the White House.

Jarreau is survived by his wife Susan and son Ryan.

Al Jarreau was a class act.

Beautiful voice, impeccable style, intoxicating smile.

His music cheers me up.

So Sad! His voice was magic - so pure and untouchable. I agree that his songs fill you with joy. RIP Mr. Jarreau.

I hope they can make time to mention him on The Grammy's tonight.

I remember their Natalie Cole tribute was such a throwaway and they had time to prepare for that one.

Didn't Al Jarreau have an album called Breaking Away? I remember seeing that album many times in the thrift shop and I thought the cover was cool and it had a song named Roof Garden featured in it too

I got to listen to some of Al Jarreau's music yesterday and it was awesome and fun to listen to. The Al Jarreau song I first listened to was Roof Garden and it is such an amazing song and is so great to dance to. Then I listened to the Moonlighting theme song and I didn't know that Al Jarreau sang the theme song because my mom was a watcher of Moonlighting and she liked the show. Finally I listened to the song We're In This Love Together and it's easy to see why this is a favorite Al Jarreau song that fans will remember him for singing because it's a neat ballad that has a nice feel to it. Al Jarreau was really talented and will be missed by fans old and young alike. And always remember "Like berries on the vine it gets sweeter all the time"
