Peabo Bryson has a voice that has likely been heard in virtually every home in America that has children.
Sadly, Bryson, who has previously won two Grammy Awards, was rushed to the hospital after suffering a mild heart attack this past weekend.
Bryson is reported to be recovering in the hospital.
The 68-year-old singer has one of the most iconic voices of our time. However, you won’t find his music on the same station as Britney Spears or Lady Gaga.
Instead, you are more likely to hear your children singing along while they watch their favorite Disney movies. Two of his more notable hits were “A Whole New World” and “Beauty and the Beast.”
While he may be best-known for his work with Disney, the singer’s list of accolades and hit songs is quite long. He has worked with such artists as Melissa Manchester, Roberta Flack, and Chaka Khan.
One of his more popular love songs is a duet he performed with Natalie Cole, “Gimme Some Time.”
In 1992, Bryson won his first Grammy with Celine Dion for “Beauty and the Beast.” He repeated the feat in 1993 with Regina Bell for “A Whole New World.”
The news of his health problems did not take long to circulate around the industry. As expected, fans have shown overwhelming support for a quick recovery for Bryson on social media.
While the heart attack was an obvious scare, Bryson is expected to make a full recovery. TMZ reported that doctors expect him to back on his feet soon.
Even though his health prognosis is looking good, his current tour will no doubt be put on hold, if not canceled altogether.
His next stop was scheduled to be this Friday night in Akron, Ohio.
