It is true what they say the good do die young. Ms. Lala Brown was on the brink of greatness before her life was snuffed out. If you are not familiar with her name I'm pretty sure you know her voice. She was the female lead singing with Lyfe Jennings for his song S.E.X. LaLa was only 21 years old when she and her producer/boyfriend were found murdered in the basement of their studio. She leaves behind a daughter, Amirrah. You can learn more about her on her myspace page.

discovered. They were reportedly dating.
JeTannue's mother, Dina Chambers, describes him as energetic, with an eye toward making music his career. "He loved music. He loved people. He was very kind. They called him "Koo Laid" because every time you saw him, he was smiling."
