One of the co-lead singers from the iconic 90’s duo ‘Milli Vanilli,’ John Davis, has now died after catching coronavirus at the age of 66.

As Fox News reports:

John Davis, one of the real voices behind infamous music group Milli Vanilli, has died of coronavirus. He was 66.

“My dad passed away this evening through the coronavirus,” Davis’ daughter Jasmin posted to Facebook on May 24. “He made a lot of people happy with his laughter and smile, his happy spirit, love and especially through his music. He gave so much to the world! Please give him the last round of applause. We will miss him dearly.”

German-French duo Milli Vanilli, with Rob Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan, was created by music producer Frank Farian. Their debut album, titled “All Or Nothing” released in Europe in 1988 and was repackaged as “Girl You Know It’s True” in 1989 in the U.S. The dance pop synth album was a smash hit, selling 11 million copies. Popular tracks included “Girl You Know It’s True,” “Blame It On The Rain” and “Babe Don’t Forget My Number.”

The album won a Grammy for best new artist in 1990.

Controversy over the band erupted in the early ’90s when it was discovered that both singers engaged in lip-syncing and didn’t sing any of their own music.

The rest of the band is contractually obligated to pretend to be dead.

Milli Vanilli had no singers, only lip syncers.

It was probably “with” the virus. I have not heard of one person that died “From” the virus. Everyone I know of personally that died had illnesses that may have killed them but because they tested positive was considered a virus death.

My daughter lingered on deaths door for months. She has rheumatoid arthritis which might or not takes years kill but after contracting covid she was in the hosp within days with covid pneumonia. This biological weapon is so unpredictable, its a giant roulette wheel. People need as many facts because no one knows who has the target on their backs. They should have as much info as available to make their own decision. Just don’t be too relaxed about covid!

I wish when they use these pictures that they would put the names of the people from left to right so those of us late to the show know who’s starring. Is John Davis the white guy or one of the black guys. I mean black guys many times have white names and white guys many times have black names. It just irritates me not identifying the people in pictures or at the least identify the person you are talking about it. And than there are articles with no pictures, the worst of my complaints. Any ways, my condolences to the family. Sounds like he was a nice guy and I am now going to search out his music.
