Songwriter/Producer Lashawn Daniels From “Tamar & Vince” Reportedly Dead at 41
Singer, songwriter and producer Lashawn Daniels has reportedly died at 41 years old.
Daniels’ death hasn’t been confirmed by any major media outlets, however, a number of close friends of his are paying tribute on social media and leaving comments on his latest post on Instagram—a photo he posted 2 days ago from the 2019 BMI Awards last week in Atlanta.
Daniels is said to have died after a fatal car crash, but, once again, nothing has been confirmed.
