Tributes paid to R&B singer James Ingram

Quincy Jones says the star was “beyond compare”

Tributes are being paid to the R&B star James Ingram who has died at home in Los Angeles at the age of 66. The singer scored a string of hits in the 80’s and 90’s including 2 Grammy wins for the songs ‘One Hundred Ways’ and ‘Yah Mo B There’, his duet with Michael McDonald. He was also a prolific songwriter with credits on albums by Ray Charles, Michael Jackson, The Pointer Sisters, George Benson and more.

Quincy Jones took to twitter when the news broke late last night, saying “James was simply magical with that soulful, whisky sounding voice. He was, and always will be beyond compare”. His friend and writing partner Debbie Allan said: “He will always be cherished, loved and remembered for his genius, his love of family and his humanity."
