Grammy winner James Ingram, known for his R & B achievements, died at the age of 66, commented friends and colleagues on Tuesday.

"It will always be appreciated, loved and remembered by his genius, his love for the family and his humanity," commented Debbie Allen.

Originally from the North American state of Ohio, Ingram began his musical career with the Revelation Funk band and later tapped the soul soul pioneer Ray Charles.

He became famous after giving his soft voice to the songs "Just Once" and "One Hundred Ways" on an album recorded by the legend of the Quincy Jones industry.
