Kevin Sharp Dies at Age of 43

Kevin Sharp

Kevin Sharp, best known for his 1996 hit “Nobody Knows” died Saturday in his Fair Oaks, California home at the age of 43. He was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer as a senior in high school, and thanks to Make-a-Wish, he met famed producer David Foster, which started several ongoing conversations.

After going into remission in 1991, Sharp eventually released an album, Measure of a Man in 1996 which garnered his no. 1 single “Nobody Knows” as well as “She’s Sure Taking It Well” and “If You Love Somebody.”

Throughout his life, Kevin worked closely with Make-A-Wish and traveled the country as a motivational speaker.

He had a good, strong heart,” Kevin’s mother tells CNN. “He’s not hurting anymore.”

A memorial service is being planned in Nashville, Tennessee. Details were not immediately available. In lieu of flowers, Sharp’s family requests that memorial donations be made to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
