Celebs Who Sadly Died In 2019

2019 saw a number of hugely talented entertainers and household names pass away. In their own way, each of these people have left a truly remarkable impression on the world. Here are some of the brightest stars we lost in 2019.

Director John Singleton passed away on April 29th, 2019, at just 51 years old, after suffering a massive stroke about two weeks earlier. Singleton became both the youngest, and the first-ever African-American best director Oscar nominee, when he got the nod at just 24 years old for his acclaimed film Boyz N the Hood. He’s also known for helming Poetic Justice, the remake of Shaft, 2 Fast 2 Furious, and Michael Jackson’s iconic music video for “Remember The Time.” He most recently served as an executive producer of the FX series Snowfall, and directed an episode of American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson in 2016.

Tributes poured out for the late director from everyone from Spike Lee to Jordan Peele to former President Barack Obama – as well as Singleton’s frequent collaborator Regina King. Singleton’s daughter Justice honored her father on Instagram, and promised to continue his legacy, writing:

“I want [to] provide what he can no longer. […] I’ll share as much of his hopes and dreams. I’ll treat those the way he did, with fist bumps and laughter. I sincerely wish he had more time but what he did here is everlasting and within me.”
