Tommy Page, the singer known for his 1990 hit “I’ll Be Your Everything,” died Friday, the Associated Press reports. He was 46.
Page, who after his music career became publisher of Billboard magazine, was found dead of an apparent suicide in New York, according to Billboard.com editorial director Denise Warner.
Billboard Entertainment Group president John Amato said, “We are all mourning the loss of our friend and colleague, Tommy Page.”
Page joined Billboard as an associate publisher in 2011, rising to the role of publisher the next year.
Page’s other post-singing gigs included serving as an executive at Warner Bros. Records and a vice president at Pandora. At the time of his death, he was a senior vice president at Cumulus Media Inc.
Born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey in 1970, Page started out as a coat room attendant at the New York nightclub Nell’s, where a career break came when the house DJ played Page’s demos in his club mixes. The exposure led to an introduction to Sire Records founder Seymour Stein, and Page signed to the label. His self-titled debut album was released in 1988 and was notable for hits including “I Think I’m in Love” and “A Shoulder to Cry On.”
Page is survived by his husband Charlie and their three children.
