Speaking to TMZ, a representative for Peabo revealed that the Grammy-winning balladeer suffered the mild heart attack when he was at his Georgia residence early Saturday morning. According to the outlet, Peabo is expected to make a full recovery and his medical team has said he's currently responsive.

The rep also told the outlet, "At this time, privacy is requested; however, the thoughts and prayers of friends and fans are welcomed and appreciated.”



 

Peabo garnered national attention in 1992 after bagging two Grammy Awards for his performance of the song "Beauty and the Beast" with Celine Dion.

The following year he won another Grammy for "A Whole New World" with Regina Belle. The track, which featured as the theme song in "Alladin", broke a number of records at the time and even toppled Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" from Billboard's Hot 100 chart in March 1993. Furthermore, both tracks secured Academy Awards for Best Original Song.

While it is unclear when Peabo will be released from the hospital, he is reportedly in stable condition as of now.
