Explosive R&B Singer Gerald Levert

sizec--> -- Gerald Levert, a fiery singe singer Eddie Levert, died on Friday, November 10 at his home in Cleveland, Ohio from an apparent heart attack. He was 40. His label, Atlantic Records, confirmed Levert's passing and the Detroit Free Press reported the cause of death.

"All of us at Atlantic are shocked and deeply saddened by his untimely death," a company statement read. "He was one of the greatest voices of our time, who sang with unmatched soulfulness and power, as well as a tremendously gifted composer and an accomplished producer."

"It's very sad. He was an amazing talent, obviously," friend and fellow rhythm and blues singer Will Downing told the Associated Press. "Gerald was a hard worker. He would go out there and do his thing, and be in places where the folks were. He would touch the people, and that's really what it's all about."
