He bridged the gap between R&B and Hip Hop. He gave Sean P Diddy Combs his first big break. He founded Uptown Records. He is non other than Andre Harrell and he will be missed. Andre passed away late Thursday night at his home in West Hollywood, California. At age 59, Andre Harrell had been battling heart problems for sometime. I found his last Instagram post to be very eerie. It was jokingly talking about skipping the corona virus season and picking it back up next year. Hopefully his peace is found in glory.
