Singer Colonel Abrams has died at the age of 67.
The star passed away on Thursday (24Nov15).
A cause of death has yet to be announced, but last year (15) a crowdfunding campaign was reportedly launched to help Abrams pay his medical bills after it was revealed he was homeless and struggling with diabetes.
Abrams was best known for hits including Trapped, Music Is the Answer, and I'm Not Gonna Let You.
Born in Detroit, Michigan, he began his career performing in New York and subsequently gained popularity in the U.K.'s house music scene.
He was also a member of the groups Conservative Manor and 94 East, which briefly featured Prince on guitar.
Producer Jellybean Benitez is among the house heroes who have paid tribute to Abrams - he tweeted: "It's a sad day for the House Music community."
