R&B artist Jesse Powell, most popular for the 1996 hit "You," passed on Tuesday at age 51, his family said.

Powell passed on "calmly" in his Los Angeles home, as per his sisters, the recording specialists Trina and Tamara Powell.

"It is with overwhelming sadness that we declare the death of our darling child, sibling and uncle Jesse Powell," Tamara Powell said in a proclamation from the family on Instagram.

"The family requests security right now as we grieve this huge misfortune and praise his never-ending heritage," it said.

The family recalled Powell as a man who cherished music and was dedicated to his fans.

"We believe all of you should realize that you meant everything to him," the assertion closed. A reason for death was not shared.

Tamara Powell shared one more post on Instagram, a video of her sibling performing to the cheers of the group.

"That voice!" she composed. "Beside being one of the most incredible R&B male singers out there, you were the best elder sibling of all time. I adored you to such an extent."

"We totally loved you 'Fly' and our family won't be something similar without you," she said. Hailing from Gary, Indiana, he and his family wound up in Los Angeles during the 1990s to seek after their vocal vocations.

Powell set four collections free from 1996 and 2003. His subsequent record, "Session It," was confirmed gold by the Keep Business Relationship of America in 1999.
