Tommy Page, whose song “I’ll Be Your Everything” topped pop charts in 1990 before landing a career as a record company executive, has died. He was 46.
According to Billboard, Page was found dead Friday of an apparent suicide.
“We are all mourning the loss of our friend and colleague Tommy Page,” said Billboard Entertainment Group President John Amato about the former Billboard publisher. “He was a magnetic soul and a true entertainer. Our thoughts are with his family.”
He is survived by his partner, Charlie, and their three children.
“So sad to hear about this,” Knight wrote with a crying emoji. “My deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.”
Wood shared the music video to Page’s hit song.
