Grammys/BET Awards producer John Cossette has passed away at 54-years-old.
Aside from producing the awards shows mentioned above, he also "oversaw the re-opening of Radio City Music Hall," and he served as a producer on the Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet, which is currently running.
Here's what John's wife Rita and daughters Maria and Rose had to say about his passing in a statement:
“We ask that you please respect our privacy during this incredibly emotional time. We appreciate everyone’s love and support.”
Perfectly understandable. Such a tragic loss.
Our thoughts go out to John's family, friends, and peers during this very difficult time.
