Today in Madonna History: May 5, 2021

On May 5 2021, Madonna paid tribute to singer and Model Nick Kamen on social media after his death was announced. Nick (real name Ivor Neville Kamen) was 59, and died following a battle with bone marrow cancer.

“It’s heart breaking to know you are gone. You were always such a kind sweet human and you suffered too much. Hope you are happier wherever you are Nick Kamen.”

From Billboard.com:

Madonna was smitten by Kamen’s “charisma” and “beautiful voice.” They inspired her to reach out and ask him to record the leftover from her 1986 True Blue album, as well as provide backing vocals on the bouncy synth-pop ditty that climbed to No. 5 on the U.K. singles charts. The “Each Time You Break My Heart” remix also peaked at No. 5 on Billboard‘s Dance Club Songs chart in May 1987. It spent 11 weeks on the chart.
