Singer Peabo Bryson is recovering in the hospital after suffering a heart attack over the weekend.
According to TMZ, the Grammy Award-winning singer was at his home in Georgia early Saturday (Apr. 28) morning when he suffered what was described as a “mild” heart attack.
A rep for Peabo says he’s responsive and doctors believe he’ll make a speedy recovery.
Bryson’s rep said in a statement: “At this time, privacy is requested; however, the thoughts and prayers of friends and fans are welcomed and appreciated.”
Peabo Bryson won two Grammy Awards, one in 1992 for his performance of “Beauty and the Beast” with Celine Dion and another in 1993 for “A Whole New World” with Regina Belle for “Aladdin.”
“A Whole New World” was so big back in the day that it dethroned Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” from the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in March 1993. Both songs also won Oscars for Best Original Song.
It isn’t clear when Peabo will be released from the hospital, but his doctors say he’s in stable condition.
