Grammy-winning songwriter-to-the-stars LaShawn Daniels died in a car crash, his family announced Wednesday. He was 41 years old.

“It is with deep and profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, family member, and friend LaShawn Daniels, who was the victim of a fatal car accident in South Carolina,” his wife, April Daniels, said in a statement on her Instagram page. “Daniels was a man of extraordinary faith and a pillar in our family.”

Daniels wrote songs for major artists including Brandy, Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Jackson, Toni Braxton, Alicia Keys and Janet Jackson. He was also known for his collaborations with producer partner Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins.

He earned a Grammy Award in 2000 for the Destiny Child’s hit “Say My Name,” and was nominated again in 2013 for Tamar Braxton’s song “Love and War.”

Daniels found love with his wife April, and they had
three children together.
The pair were regulars on the 2012 WE reality
series “Tamar & Vince” featuring their close friends
singer Tamar Braxton and her then husband,
record executive Vincent Herbert.
News of Daniel’s death was greeted Wednesday
with an outpouring of love from the music industry.
We want to offer our condolences to his family.
