Il mondo dell’R&B ha perso un’altra leggenda: Jesse Powell è morto all’età di 51 anni. La sorella di Jesse, la musicista vincitrice di un Grammy Award Tamara Powell, ha annunciato la morte di Jesse su Instagram il 13 settembre. “È con il cuore pesante che annunciamo la scomparsa del nostro amato fastidio, zio e figlio, Jesse Powell.” Secondo il post, il candidato al Grammy Award è morto nella sua casa di Los Angeles. “Jesse amava la musica e amava particolarmente i suoi fan che lo hanno supportato durante la sua carriera. Vogliamo che tutti sappiate che significavate il mondo per lui. – La famiglia Powell”, ha aggiunto Tamara. L’altra sorella di Jesse, Trina Powell, che ha lavorato nell’industria musicale insieme a sua sorella Tamara, ha ripubblicato la dichiarazione di Tamara sul suo Facebook. Al momento, la famiglia di Jesse non ha rilasciato una causa ufficiale della morte. Dal momento che non c’era stampa precedente sulle possibili cause, i fan non si aspettavano che questo sarebbe arrivato.

According to TMZ, Jesse was born in Gary, Indiana. He was first discovered at a talent show, although his career didn’t take off until the mid ’90s. He’s best known for his hit single “You,” which peaked at No. 10 on the Billboard charts. The song, released as part of Jesse’s self-titled debut album and his follow-up, “Bout it,” did exceptionally better on the R&B charts, reaching the No. 2 slot. After the success of “You,” Jesse went on to release two more albums before retiring in 2003, per Vibe.
