He was a legend in the music industry. The pen and producer behind basically every song that brought us through our teen years to adulthood, has died. The full details about Lashawn Daniels' fatal car crash inside.

Just after midnight, news broke on social media that Lashawn Daniels, one of the most well known songwriters in the industry, was involved in a fatal car accident. Without an actual confirmation from a credible news source or family or close friends, it was unclear about its validity.

This afternoon, his wife, April Daniels, confirmed the horrible news which can now be responsibly shared. It's hard to read, knowing how close and happy they have been for years as a couple. We've seen them on many seasons of WeTV's "Tamar & Vince" being the voice of reason for The Herberts as they went through their split.

April confirmed that Lashawn was in a tragic car accident while in South Carolina.



Heartbreaking. April's friends have been posting their heartfelt support as well:

Everyone has been pouring out their hearts about the man responsible for every classic R&B track from Monica & Brandy's "The Boy Is Mine" to Tamar's Love & War album to Michael Jackson's music. He often collaborated with Rodney Jerkins on their many instant classics:

Happy Fathers Day @bigshiz we have grown together, won together, loss together, laughed together, cried together & forgave together. But being a great father is something only you can do and have been doing for our sons. Only a man can show a boy how to become a man and I thank God you have always held your position down. Being a parent is a gift and I am grateful that I have a partner that holds that same regard for our boys. There’s no rule book to what a dad should be to his child/children but when you have a great foundation set from your own father the love and selflessness is automatic. Thank you baby for setting the foundation in our boys and our home. They are better men because of it. I love you and all that you do and sacrifice for your family. Happy Fathers Day Husband!
