Kevin Sharp, known for his 1996 hit "Nobody Knows" as well as granting wishes to critically ill children, died Saturday from "ongoing complications" from stomach operations and digestive problems, according to his website. He was 43.
Kevin began his career while being treated for bone cancer when he met producer David Foster through the Make-A-Wish Foundation and never forget about that gift. He spent much of his time visiting sick children and speaking to cancer patients. He became a spokesman for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and was named their Wish Granter of the Year in 1997.
Kevin was also a guest with Mark & Pam and the thing that impressed us the most was that he was such a gentle soul who wouldn't hurt a fly. Even though he didn't have a lot of success as a country singer he certainly left his mark on the world and will be truly missed.
Thank you so much for stopping by my page for a visit! For those of you new to WMUS, I'll give you a little bit of insight into who Mark Dixon is. For those of you who have been around for some time, you pretty much know everything about me. My life is pretty much an open book.
I've come by my career in broadcasting honestly, having grown up in Kalamazoo as a son of a radio disc jockey. My father was a DJ at WKZO and was the long time "voice" of TV Channel 3 (WKZO, currently WWMT). Years later, my career in radio began in 1978 in the small town of Ottawa, Ohio. From there I had a short stint in Lima, Ohio. Since 1988 my family has called WMUS and West Michigan home.
My interests are bicycling, deer and turkey hunting, bowling, golf, and computers (I've become quite a geek late in life.). I also enjoyed coaching my son in soccer when he went to Fruitport
You probably know that I'm not shy about bragging and talking about my grandkids, Katelyn and Brendan on the air either!
