The small piece of you who is still a 7th grader, slow dancing to I’ll Be Your Everything in the school cafeteria during a spring dance probably died this past weekend after finding out that Tommy Page is no longer with us. 90s pop crooner turned music executive Tommy Page died on Friday at the age of 46. Tommy’s cause of death isn’t known right now, but several of Tommy’s friends believe he committed suicide. Tommy Page’s family gave this statement to Variety:
“It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of our beloved Tommy Page who passed away this weekend. Tommy was a devoted father, husband, brother and son. He was loved by all of those he touched and will be sorely missed. Please respect our privacy at this time of deep sorrow.”
Tommy Page had a #1 Billboard Hot 100 hit with I’ll Be Your Everything, which he wrote with Jordan Knight and Danny Wood of New Kids on the Block. Donnie Wahlberg was a producer on it.
Tommy Page went on to make 9 albums and tour the world. He also went to NYU’s Stern School of Business because he wanted to become a music executive. That dream came true. He was an A&R executive at Warner Bros. where he worked with and mentored Alanis Morrissette, Josh Groban, Green Day and others. He was also an exec at Pandora.
Many of us may also remember Tommy from that Full House episode where he serenades Stephanie as DJ holds back Kimmy Gibbler who wants to get on his hot ass.
Tommy is survived by his partner, Charlie, and their three children.
Rest in peace, Tommy.
