Madonna Mourns the Death of Singer and Model Nick Kamen

Madonna.

The singer launched him to fame in 1986, by giving him a song written by her that became a success, and featured the “queen of pop” herself in the backing vocals.

How could it be otherwise, the singer Madonna has taken advantage of her social networks to mourn the death of Nick Kamen and pay tribute to his protégé during the second half of the eighties. The singer and model, who became known in 1985 for his physical work and that angelic face that led him to star in one of the most suggestive advertisements of Levi’s jeans firm, has died at 59 years old and after a long battle against a disease of which no further details are known.

“It breaks my heart to find out that you are gone. You were always a very sweet and caring human being, and I know you have suffered too much. I hope you are happier wherever you go, Nick Kamen ”, reads the moving message published by the queen of pop on her Instagram profile, to which she has added a photograph of both working in a recording studio, an image that probably dates from the year 1985 or 1986.

It should be remembered that after the publication of the successful True blue (1986) -one of the most acclaimed and best-selling albums of the diva’s discography-, Madonna asked the then model and aspiring singer -of which she herself would ensure decades later that he had a prodigious and sensitive voice – to record one of the songs, “Each time you break my heart”, which he had had to discard from the aforementioned album, even offering to do backing vocals for him.

However, the consecration of Nick Kamen in the recording scene, and in the Olympus of those stars whose songs transcend their time to become timeless classics, would come in 1990, when he released the acclaimed and highly romantic “I promised myself”. In that new decade, his spectacular physique in underwear still appeared frequently on television, in the mythical and aforementioned Levi’s advertisement, but his professional profile already stood out mainly for his foray into the genre of melodic song. However, no one could deny that undeniable appeal to which his stage presence, his ravishing smile, and his penetrating gaze also contributed.
