Covid silences real voice of Milli Vanilli, John Davis, at 66

John Davis, one of the real singers behind stage act Milli Vanilli, has died at 66 from coronavirus-related causes.

Davis’ daughter Jasmin shared the announcement on Monday.

“My dad passed away this evening through the coronavirus,” she wrote on Facebook. “He made a lot of people happy with his laughter and smile, his happy spirit, love and especially through his music. He gave so much to the world! Please give him the last round of applause. We will miss him dearly.”

The French-German duo Milli Vanilli — musical-actors Rob Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan — debuted in 1988 in Europe before making a splash in the US a year later with their album “Girl You Know It’s True,” selling 11 million copies and earning the group, along with founding producer Frank Farian, a Grammy in 1990.
