Tommy Page, who sang the No. 1 hit “I’ll Be Your Everything” and later became a music executive, died Friday, March 3, 2017, in New York City, according to multiple news sources. He was 46.
Billboard.com reported that Page died of an apparent suicide. He had previously been the publisher of Billboard magazine.
“We are all mourning the loss of our friend and colleague Tommy Page,” Billboard Entertainment Group President John Amato said in a statement. “He was a magnetic soul and a true entertainer. Our thoughts are with his family.”
Page had a No. 1 hit with the song “I’ll Be Your Everything” in 1990. The song was co-written with Jordan Knight and Danny Wood of the group New Kids on the Block. Fellow New Kid Donnie Wahlberg and Knight also helped produce the track.
Born May 24, 1970, in Glen Ridge, New Jersey, he was signed to a recording contract as a teenager after his demo made its way into the hands of Seymour Stein, the executive who signed the Ramones, the Pretenders, and Madonna, among many other artists.
As his recording career waned, he returned to school, graduating from New York University’s Stern School of Business. He became an A&R executive for Warner Bros. and had a hand in shaping the careers of Alanis Morissette, Michael Buble, and Green Day.
Page later worked for Billboard magazine and Pandora, and he was working most recently for Cumulus Media as senior vice president of brand partnerships.
Page is survived by his husband, Charlie, and their three children.
