LFO singer Devin Lima dies at 41 after year-long battle with cancer

Lyte Funkie Ones (LFO) singer Devin Lima has died at the age of 41 after his year-long grueling battle with stage four cancer. According to the American pop band singer's family member, Lima died early Wednesday morning, TMZ reported.

Lima starred in the band as a duo singer, the other half being singer Brad Fischetti. The group was originally a trio, however, a third member — singer Rich Cronin — succumbed to leukemia after a long fight with the disease.

The boy band was popular in the 1990s and had hits like 'Summer Girls' in 1999, which topped at #3 on Billboard Hot 100. Other hits of the bland included 'Girl On TV', and 'Every Other Time'. 'Summer Girls' was nominated for a Billboard Music Award for Top Selling Single of the Year and the song sold over 1.5 million copies in the United States.



 

The band also recorded two albums titled 'LFO' — which sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide — and 'Life is Good' and also released the single 'Perfect 10' last year in the summer.

Reports state that the American pop band was also planning a tour earlier this year in the spring, however, they had to cancel the tour after doctors reportedly discovered a football-sized tumor on Lima's adrenal gland. The tumor was reportedly pushing against Lima's multiple organs, including his heart.

 



 The singer also had surgeries to remove the tumor, however, at the time of the surgery they discovered that it was malignant and it turned out to be stage four cancer.
