Brownstone Singer Charmayne Maxwell Dies at 46: Report
The singer reportedly died Friday, but details remain scarce
Charmayne Maxwell, a member of the ’90s group Brownstone, died on Friday, PEOPLE confirms. She was 46.
“Words cannot express how devastated we are at the sudden and tragic loss of our dear Maxee,” her husband Soulshock – whom TMZ reports found Maxwell – tells PEOPLE in a statement. “She was the center of our world as a devoted mother and wife. We miss her so much. We would like to thank everyone who has been there for us and expressed your condolences. They have given us comfort over these incredibly difficult days.”
Maxwell’s brother Brandon Maxwell confirmed the death on Twitter Saturday, lamenting her “terrible” passing.
“R.I.P my beautiful sister Charmayne ‘Maxee’ Maxwell,” he wrote. “I can’t even believe I’m typing this right now.”
He added a second Tweet: “Bad things happened to the most innocent people. My sister died in the most terrible way and I’m in so much pain right now.”
Charmayne was a member of Brownstone for over a decade. Their biggest hit, “If You Love Me,” earned a Grammy nod in 1995.
She is survived by her husband and their son.
