Peabo Bryson hospitalized after heart attack
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.
The representative says the Grammy-winning balladeer was at his home in Georgia early Saturday morning when he suffered the mild heart attack. We're told Peabo's currently responsive and both his medical team and family are optimistic he'll make a speedy recovery.
“At this time, privacy is requested; however, the thoughts and prayers of friends and fans are welcomed and appreciated.” his rep said.
Bryson won two Grammys in the '90s for his performances of the “Beauty and the Beast” theme song with Celine Dion, and the “Aladdin” theme song "A Whole New World" with Regina Belle. “A Whole New World” took the top spot from Whitney Houston’s “Bodyguard” soundtrack song “I Will Always Love You,” which dominated charts in 1993
It's currently unclear as to when Peabo will be released from the hospital, but he is in stable condition.
