I always loved his contribution to We Are The World at the end of the song. It added so much passion and soul to a rather “poppy” song, considering the subject matter. Definitely an artist that should have had even more chart success than he did when you consider he hit number one and then had very little chart success after Its Real. RIP

I was listening to a few of his songs and started to cry. He was one of my favorite singers. When listening to "Somewhere Out There" and "The Day I Fell In Love", I started to weep. 😔😢
