It’s a sad day in the jazz world.

Grammy-winning jazz singer Al Jarreau died in a Los Angeles hospital just days after announcing his retirement from touring due to exhaustion.

His Twitter account and website say he died early Sunday. He was 76 years old.

Earlier in the week, Jarreau was hospitalized and was said to have been improving slowly.

“The Wisconsin native has won seven Grammys over a 50-year career. His biggest single was 1981’s “We’re in This Love Together.” Jarreau was a vocalist on the all-star 1985 track, “We Are the World,” and sang the theme to TV’s “Moonlighting.””- thegrio.com

Did you know, he is one of the few artists to have won Grammys in three separate categories — jazz, pop and R&B.

Jarreau is survived by his wife, Susan, and a son, Ryan.
