Biography

(1966 – 2006)

Gerald Levert (July 13 1966 - November 10 2006) was an singer, one of several from the musical Levert family. His father, Eddie Levert, is the lead singer of the 1970s soul group The O’Jays. Gerald Levert sang with his brother, Sean Levert, and Marc Gordon in the R&B trio LeVert. He was also a member of LSG, an R&B trio also featuring Johnny Gill and Keith Sweat

During the 1980s and early 1990s, Levert scored big hits with “Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop (Goes My Mind)”, “Casanova”, and “ABC-123” (not to be confused with the Jackson Five hit of the same name). As a solo artist, Gerald’s hits included “I’d Give Anything (to Fall in Love)”, “You Got that Love”, and “Mr. Too Damn Good To You”.

Gerald and Eddie collaborated together on many different occasions, and they recorded an album called Father and Son together.

Gerald Levert also sang the chorus on the Chris Rock spoken-word comedy piece, “No Sex (In The Champagne Room)”.

In 2005, Levert’s daughter Carlysia was featured on an episode of MTV’s My Super Sweet Sixteen.

Levert passed away due to an apparent heart attack on November 10, 2006. Sister 2 Sister magazine reported that Gerald and his father had just returned from a 10-day trip to South Africa where they had met with Nelson Mandela and were treated like royalty.

    RIP Gerald (and his brother Sean.) You were both amazing singers and good people. It's just too bad I didn't know about you until after you died. ♥ your music.

    I started to listen to Gerald mere months before he died; My mother is a lifelong fan of his (interestingly she never like Eddie though) and I have new respect for him. R.I.P to Gerald, You'll never be forgotten by me

    you people have no respect for the deceased...the anemic scrobbles. atlantic records needs to upload his songs here so gerald levert can be given a proper acknowledgment. he is forever an r&b crooner, with 3 decades worth of hits. unbelievable that he was taken so soon. but his catalog is available & enormous so sit down & be prepared to stay awhile.
