Jimi Jamison, Survivor Singer Dead at 63

Former singer for Survivor, Jimi Jamison has passed away at the age of 63-years-old on Sunday night. SAD. TMZ reports:

Jamison’s booking agent, Sally Irwin, tells TMZ that Jamison died of a heart attack at his home in Memphis. He had just performed with the band Saturday night in Northern California.

Jamison joined Survivor in 1984 (after their smash hit “Eye of the Tiger”) but was the lead singer on other classic songs like, “The Moment of Truth” (from “The Karate Kid”), “The Search Is Over,” and “Is This Love.”

The singer’s family updated his official Facebook page 15 hours ago with the following status:

We are saddened and heartbroken to announce the passing of a great musician, loving father and grandfather, and overall extraordinary, giving, and kindhearted human being. He’s loved by so many, most of all his family, and he will be incredibly missed by all. Please keep his family in your prayers, and please give them the privacy they need during this extremely difficult time. Thank you all for your condolences and kind words.

In case you need a little Survivor in your lives, play the crap out of their best album “Vital Signs” in his remembrance:

Rest in peace, Jimi Jamison.
