I’m posting the below because 1) I had seen Peter performing a few years ago and he was pretty good, and 2) I hope Peter’s success will be an inspiration to other GLBT youth out there to show just how sucessful you can be. You can find Peter’s music on iTunes. (Thanks to my friend Phillip for tiping me to this.)
From The Washington Blade:
Peter Fox, a likable local gay singer/songwriter, died early Monday morning, according to a statement released by his family. He was 45 and died of central nervous system lymphoma according to his friend, fellow musician Tom Nichols.
Fox, a Pompton Plains, N.J., native, studied business and music at Pennsylvania State University and had devoted the last seven years mostly to singing. He performed at corporate and LGBT events, sang at the 2010 AIDS Walk and performed a cabaret show last summer at Signature Theatre. He had previously been active in the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington and sang in its Potomac Fever ensemble. His eponymous debut album came out in May, 2010. By day he was membership director for an HIV medical certification association. He had previously been a truck driver.
