True Milli Vanilli Singer Dies From Covid Aged 66

John Davis: True Milli Vanilli singer dies from Covid aged 66.

Singer John Davis, one of the true recognised vocal talents behind the notorious pop duo Milli Vanilli, has died from coronavirus at the age of 66. Davis sang on the group’s hit 1989 album Girl You Know It’s True.

Fronted by Fabrice Morvan and Rob Pilatus, the group sold more than 30 million singles, but were stripped of a Grammy Award after it emerged in a scandal that they lip-synced on hits they had never even recorded.

In Paying tribute to her father, Davis’s daughter Jasmin asked for one “last round of applause”. She added: “He made a lot of people happy with his laughter and smile, his happy spirit, love and especially through his music,” she wrote in a Facebook post.

Born in South Carolina, Davis moved to Germany and his vocals, if not his identity, became known worldwide under the guise of Milli Vanilli – the brainchild of record producer Frank Farian.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!. Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
