Country singer Kevin Sharp, who’s recorded multiple chart-topping hits and survived a battle with cancer, has passed away at the relatively young age of 43. Mary Huston, Sharp’s sister, said he died at his mother’s Fair Oaks, Calif., home, at 10:49 p.m. Saturday of complications from past stomach surgeries and digestive issues.
“He had a strong heart, that’s what kept him alive, (but) I’m so happy for him, that there’s no more suffering,” Huston said while fighting back tears. She has been caring for her brother since his return home to Northern California last Friday after 10 weeks in the hospital.
Sharp gained fame with the release of “Nobody Knows,” a single on his 1996 debut album, “Measure of a Man.” He released two other albums, “Love Is” in 1998 and “Make A Wish” in 2005.
“His dream came true through music, and he touched thousands of lives, and he helped heal the soul of people dealing with cancer,” Huston said.
Sharp is survived by five brothers, two sisters and his mother.
