    Just days after announcing he was retiring from touring after being hospitalized for exhaustion, jazz singer Al Jarreau has passed away.

    The artist died at the age of 76 in a Los Angeles hospital on February 12th. His manager, Joe Gordon, released the following statement
    .
    Dear friends, family, and colleagues,

    Al Jarreau passed away this morning, at about 5:30am LA time. He was in the hospital, kept comfortable by Ryan (his son), Susan (his wife), and a few of his family and friends.

    Ryan and Susan will hold a small, private service at home, for immediate family only. No public service is planned yet, but I will inform you if that changes.

    Ryan asks that no flowers or gifts are sent to their home or office. Instead, if you are motivated to do so, please make a contribution to the Wisconsin Foundation for School Music, a wonderful organization which supports music opportunities, teachers, and scholarships for students in Milwaukee and throughout Wisconsin. A donation page is here. Even if you do not plan to contribute, please list that page and give yourself a few minutes to watch a beautiful tribute video that Wisconsin Public Television produced to honor Al when he received his lifetime achievement award in October.

    R.I.P.!

    1. Wait, wait waitin for it…….illuminate, sacrifice or some other crackpot, BullSHT theory on how this man died even tho he had been sick for months if not years.

      • it was a ritual for the grammy fuck what you heard did anyone see that shit krik franklin wearing a dress, beyince and thiese egpytian gods shit

    2. “Exhaustion” is PR speak for addiction issues(as everyone knows.) He seemed a bit long in the tooth for that, but I guess it has been a lifelong battle.

      I loved his music, RIP Al. You are in peace now.

      And for Stephen above^^^ Give it a rest hon. Al was a sick old man. I swear before God, you are as bad as the people who said that Maya Angelou’s death at 87 was a “sacrifice” for Oprah.

      You make me very sad for you, because I know you are a nice person. For reals, have you considered therapy or medication? Your level of paranoia is making your life so much less than it could be. I have known people like you who were put on meds and their paranoia and belief that everything is a conspiracy went away like THAT! It’s not your fault Stephen. You just have some mis-firing synapses in your brain. Please consider it.

      • it was a joke i know he wasn’t a sacrifce but these rituals are real and im not paraniod maya angelou was apart of the boule along with coreeta king and rosa parks they where members of the same frat maya solded out

        • but does make you wonder as soon as he retired he died? hmmm? you can quit the inudstry they quit you

          • Okay. I hope you really mean that it was a joke.

            I’ve been reading your comments for a long time and I am worried about you. I know that sounds weird, but I really do worry that you may have been completely corrupted by the suggestive and over the top conspiracy sites.
            Stephen, no one’s saying that there isn’t a lost of underhanded stuff going on today, but ever since yo said that you really believe that Michelle Obama is a man, I started thinking you are terribly lost.
            If I saw you in person, I could easily break it down for you and prove that Michelle is a biological woman, and the extreme right started that rumor just to further denigrate the former president and first lady. But I don’t want to get into all that on a public site like this.
            But believe me, she is a woman and she is the girls’ birth mother. Take care.

            • @Stephen, don’t listen to Dr. Phil. He hasn’t been relevant in years. I enjoy ur posts. And definitely don’t think you need meds or therapy.

              • ^^THIS!!!!^^^

                That MF thinks they know everything about everyone on here.

                It is like if you are so high and mighty why the fuck are you here? Misery at it’s best…

    3. michelle obama is a man those kids are not theirs google the real parents come and admitted it barack is homosexual why are his lovers dead donald young and larry sinclair and reveerend wirght also was one of his lovers

      • why are y’all so defensive of the obamas what the hell did they do you for you? brack cared more about gays than black people he thinks were stupid people

    4. show me pictures of michelle obama pregnant where are the pictures? please answer me that i guess you thought beyonce was pregenat really? why was she wearing high heels and heer stomach was bending in come on man?!

      • Show me a picture of her as a boy growing up in a black neighborhood where you know she would have been killed if she would have been dressing up as a girl…you are the one who sounds mentally ill.
