CLOSURE: Yesterday, famed R&B singer Gerald Levert passed away due to an apparent heart attack while sleeping. He was just 40 years old. Gerald was the son of Eddie Levert of the O'Jays and the brother of Sean Levert, who joined him in the group Levert.

His hits will live on. Counting both his solo work and his work with Levert, I believe he had 16 songs hit the top 20 on the R&B charts, including five songs that hit #1. His only big pop success was "Casanova," which went all the way to #4 on the pop charts. One of his last hits was called "Closure."
