Country Singer Kevin Sharp Passes Away at 43
news was shared with fans through a statement released on the singer’s official website. This is no time to talk
about funny animal videos of the best hip hop music videos being made in contemporary America.
A Terrible Loss
Sharp had previously survived a very public battle with cancer but passed away on Saturday due to
complications from past stomach surgeries and digestive issues. Sharp’s mother told news sources that her son
died on Saturday night at her home in Fair Oaks, California.
A Life of Goodness
Sharps official website, which fans visited to watch free music videos of the country singer, carried the
shocking news on Saturday. Kevin Sharp was born on December 10th
with his very first hit single called ‘Nobody Knows’. After that, success was no stranger to Sharp, as he went on
to top the charts with many hits over the last couple of years. After his battle with cancer in the 90s, Sharp also
travelled the country as a very successful Motivational Speaker. He also became a spokesperson for the Make-
A-Wish Foundation and wrote a book about fighting cancer in 2004 titled ‘Tragedy’s Gift’.
It was in 1989, when Sharp was a senior in high school, that he began to experience fatigue and excessive
dizziness. This was not because of any stand up comedy videos he wanted to do or any street bike stunts he
ever wanted to do. Tests confirmed that the singer had Ewing’s sarcoma, a form of bone cancer. The singer
went through two years of radiation treatments and chemotherapy to beat the illness, but permanently losing his
hair as a result.
During that time Sharp met with Grammy Award-winning music producer David Foster, thanks to a wish
granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Foster and Sharp developed a strong friendship. He gave Sharp
advice on his music career and even jumpstarted it by helping him secure a record deal with Asylum Records in
Nashville. This was beyond any latest Hollywood news and gossip because this happened years ago.
After that, there was no looking back for Kevin Sharp. He released his debut album “Measure Of A Man,” in
November 1996 and the album sold more than 500,000 copies and was certified as ‘Gold’ in terms of sales.
If someone was going to make celebrity news gossip videos it could have been about him. His hit single
“Nobody Knows,” a country version of the song that was made famous by the Tony Rich Project, was the
one that catapulted the album into topping the charts everywhere. The song topped the Billboard Hot Country
Singles and Tracks chart for four weeks.
Kevin Sharp is survived by this mother, two sisters and five brothers.
