This Beloved Pop Star Was Just Found Dead

Tommy Page, who started his career as a 1990's pop star and became a successful executive in the music industry, is dead at age 46. His family, friends, colleagues and fans are mourning their loss, and celebrating Page's life.

Page's first big break came when he was a coat checker at a popular New York City celebrity haunt. The DJ liked Page's demo and used parts of it in club mixes. The unusual sound caught the attention of executives at Sire Records, and at 18 the company asked Page to write a theme for the movie 'Shag'. This was shortly followed up by Page's debut album.

In the 1990's, Page became famous for his No. 1 single, "I'll Be Your Everything." He performed with the boy band New Kids on the Block and it became a hit. Page had a few successful songs follow up after that, but none achieved the success of "I'll Be Your Everything".

By the late 90's, Page moved on to Broadway, starring in ' Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat'. He also continued his solo career into the 2000s, and made an appearance on the show 'Full House'.

Page's career reached new heights as an executive with Warner Bros. Records. He helped launch the careers of such famous stars as Michael Bublé, Josh Groban, and Green Day.

Page became an associated publisher at Billboard and in 2013 he became Head of Music Partnerships at Pandora Internet Media.

According to some sources, Page's death was a suicide, though details have not yet been released.

“We are all mourning the loss of our friend and colleague, Tommy Page,” said John Amato, President of Billboard Entertainment Group, in a statement to the Associated Press. “He was a magnetic soul and a true entertainer.”

" I remember his same genuine smile he have every time you saw him. A very sad loss. #riptommypage," tweeted Joey McIntrye.

"Recording "I'll Be Your Everything" w @jordanknight and #tommypage in '89! Special memories. Great times. #RIPTommyPage," tweeted Donnie Wahlberg.

Page is survived by his partner, Charlie, and three children.
