Joyce Sims, who was known for her song, “Come Into My Life”, has passed away at 63.
CJ Carlos, a former Chelsea Football Club employee, shared the news of the singer’s tragic death on social media, stating that she passed away on Saturday (October 15).
It is unknown what caused Joyce’s death.
The American diva made her R&B music debut in the 1980s, and her first chart-topping single, All and All, came out in 1986.
After the 1987 single “Come Into My Life” was released, she became well-known all over the world. This song went on to become her anthem and peaked at number 10 on both the US Billboard R&B Chart and the UK Singles Chart.
Joyce was a very talented pianist and songwriter who produced most of her own hits. In the years that followed, she also released several other songs, including “Lifetime Love”, “Walk Away”, and “Looking for a Love”.
During her career, the soul singer was sampled by a number of musical greats, including jazz singer Randy Crawford, rapper Snoop Dogg, and R&B singer Angie Stone.
She not only composed, but also performed, the songs heard in the 1995 film Species.
By the end of the 1990s, the hits had slowed down, but she kept up her regular touring and was well-liked in Europe. She even gave a performance in London in August of this year.
