Gerald Levert Dead At The Age Of 40, Jack Palance Dies At 87

by Ife Oshun ·

RIP Gerald LevertThey say death comes in threes, and we’re seeing it now.

Yesterday we reported the passing of news legend Ed Bradley, now today, R&B powerhouse Gerald Levert has tragically passed away today due to fatal heart attack. He had turned 40 this summer.

More…

Gerald and his father Eddie (lead singer from the legendary O’Jays) had just returned from touring South Africa and were reportedly beginning work on a follow up to their critically acclaimed duet set Father And Son.

And as far as the third death, it’s been confirmed that Oscar-winning acting legend Jack Palance passed away today as well. The LA Times has a great obit on this remarkable man, one of the last of the true Method actors and a hero of mine.

RIP Levert and Palance.

    I saw levert in concert a long time ago with his father and it still ranks as one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. How sad for his father to be alive to see his son die.
