Singer Peabo Bryson is recovering well, after suffering from a heart attack last week.
During the 1970s and 1980s, Peabo recorded 17 Top 20 R&B hits and released three different gold-certified albums. He's best known, however for recording two popular Disney movie theme songs, for both Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin.
Peabo's rep told MTO News, “We are happy to report that Double Grammy / Double Oscar Award-winning balladeer, Peabo Bryson, is on his way to making a full recovery!
But he's not out of the woods yet. Peabo is still listed in stable condition and is improving, rapidly. The family continues to request privacy, but extends their deepest gratitude and appreciation to friends and fans for the outpour of love and support expressed throughout this experience.
According to the singer's rep, concert dates in May have been canceled so that Peabo can continue his rest and recovery.
Peabo is a legendary R&B and soul singer-songwriter, born in Greenville, South Carolina. He is well known for singing soul ballads (often as a duo with female singers) and has contributed to three Disney animated feature soundtracks. Bryson is winner of two Grammy Awards.
Bryson's greatest solo hits include 1977's "Feel the Fire" and "Reaching for the Sky", 1978's "I'm So Into You" and "Crosswinds", 1982's "Let the Feeling Flow", 1984's "If Ever You're in My Arms Again" (his first Top 10 pop single, at #10 in the US), 1989's "Show and Tell", and the 1991 hit "Can You Stop the Rain".
