In news that is undeniably upsetting, word spread on Saturday that Tommy Page has reportedly died at age 46, according to Billboard and various other sources. The singer may be best remembered for his '90s song "I'll Be Your Everything" and the time he spent collaborating with New Kids on the Block. But Page will always have a special place in millennials' hearts, thanks to his cameo on Full House, where he serenaded Stephanie Tanner. A rep for Page could not be reached by Bustle at the time of publication.
Update: On Saturday, Page's agent confirmed the news and shared the following statement with Bustle:
"Industry Veteran Tommy Page has passed away at his Pennsylvanian home. Page, an accomplished artist, had recorded many hits, including #1 Billboard Single “I’ll Be Your Everything”. He was also an Industry Executive w/positions at Warner Bros and Sire Records, Billboard Magazine, Pandora, and Cumulus Media to name a few. This industry legend mentored many artists and continued to tour to a massive fan base in Asia."
Page's agent, Marc Katz, is quoted in the statement, saying, "This is a loss not only in our industry but anyone who knew Tommy, enjoyed the light he brought to a room. He was an amazing friend and father. Tommy is gone way to early and will be remembered as someone that left a real footprint in this world."
According to the rest of the statement, "Page is survived by his 3 children, 12, 10 and 8, his parents, two brothers and his sister. More details will be released on a memoriam."
