Confirming multiple reports this morning, TenthLetterMedia & Straight Official Magazine are saddened to hear of the loss of not one, but two icons of the music industry. Music executive Andre Harrell has died at the age of 59, and Rock and Roll legend Little Richard has also died at the age of 87.
Harrell, the founder of Uptown Records is remembered for his many accolades of achievement upon the industry, including the discovery of Hip-Hop mogul Sean “Puffy” Combs. Richard was, is and will always be the greatest inspiration to any artist in the music industry and was both groundbreaking and fearless in his journey.
We offer our sincerest condolences to all of the families, friends and fans of these two legendary musicians.
