I am shocked and saddened to hear about the passing of one of my favourite singers Jim Diamond. Just over three weeks ago Jim spoke about his mother, who passed away recently, on his official Facebook Page, and now this sad news. Jim had a unique and distinctive voice –  he was a wonderful rare talent! Condolences goes out to Jim’s family and friends. Thank you for the great music Jim! God Bless, rest In peace Jim Diamond. X
