John Davis, Real Milli Vanilli Singer, Dies of COVID-19 at 66


One of the real singers behind infamous musical duo Milli Vanilli has died. John Davis passed away at 66 years of age due to the coronavirus. His daughter posted the news on Facebook earlier this week.

Milli Vanilli had great success during the late 1980s and won a Grammy in 1990 for Best New Artist. However they had to return the award when it was revealed that the front members of the group - Rob Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan - weren't actually the ones really singing. Instead it was John Davis and others who were merely credited as backup singers.

Morvan posted a tribute to Davis on Twitter:

Pilatus passed away in 1998 after an accidental overdose.
