Singer Peabo Bryson has been hospitalized after suffering a mild heart attack “at his home in the early morning hours of Saturday,” his rep told ESSENCE Monday in a statement.
“He is currently listed in stable condition and is awake and responsive. Both his medical team and family are optimistic for a speedy recovery,” the statement continued. “At this time, privacy is requested; however, the thoughts and prayers of friends and fans are welcomed and appreciated.”
Bryson has won two Grammy Awards during his decades-long career. In 1992, he won a Grammy for his performance of “Beauty and the Beast” with Celine Dion. And in 1993, Bryson picked up a Grammy Award for “A Whole New World” with Regina Belle.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Bryson and his family at this time. We hope he makes a speedy recovery.
