He was a two-time Grammy Award-winner and a two-time Academy Award nominee for Best Original Song.

Since beginning his career in 1973, Ingram had charted eight Top 40 hits on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart from the early 1980s until the early 1990s, as well as thirteen top 40 hits on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. In addition, he charted 20 hits on the Adult Contemporary chart (including two number-ones). He had two number-one singles on the Hot 100: the first, a duet with fellow R&B artist Patti Austin, 1982's "Baby, Come to Me" topped the U.S. pop chart in 1983; "I Don't Have the Heart", which became his second number-one in 1990 was his only number-one as a solo artist. In between these hits, he also recorded the song "Somewhere Out There" with fellow recording artist Linda Ronstadt for the animated film An American Tail. The song and the music video both became gigantic hits. Ingram co-wrote "The Day I Fall in Love", from the motion picture Beethoven's 2nd (1993), and singer Patty Smyth's "Look What Love Has Done", from the motion picture Junior (1994), which earned him nominations for Best Original Song from the Oscars, Golden Globes, and Grammy Awards in 1994 and 1995.

Obituary: Susan Hiller, the artist of neglected memories

By Ash*tha Nagesh BBC News  1 February 2019

Susan Hiller said this in 2005 at a gallery in London where one of her video installations was being shown.

For the piece, J-Street Project, she had spent three years filming clips of different street names in Germany that referred to a lost Jewish presence, such as "Judenstrasse" and "Judenweg".

She then put them together in a quiet montage, punctured only by the occasional oblivious honk from a passing van, or a glimpse of a pedestrian walking idly by.

"These street names are ghosts of the past, haunting the present," she said of the piece. "The street signs in my images explicitly name what's missing from all these places."

Ghosts were visible to Hiller. Not in a literal sense, of course, but she could see the histories that others had collectively forgotten - and through her art, whether it revived neglected memorial plaques or documented dying languages, she gave the rest of us a glimpse of these ghosts too.

Following a short illness, Hiller died on Monday 28 January at the age of 78.

January 13

Willie Murphy (November 17, 1943 – January 13, 2019) was an American pianist, singer, producer, and songwriter. He is best known as a singer and pianist for the blues band Willie and the Bees. He is also known for his work with Bonnie Raitt and John Koerner.

Murphy was born and grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States, in an Irish Catholic working-class family. He began piano lessons at the age of 4. His early musical influences were Little Richard, Fats Domino, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Ray Charles.

Murphy played on the folk circuit with John Koerner, and the duo recorded Running, Jumping, Standing Still in 1969. The album received positive reviews, Crawdaddy! calling it "one of the most unique and underrated albums of the folk boom, perhaps the only psychedelic ragtime blues album ever made."[1] The duo eventually split up, and Koerner pursued an unsuccessful career in filmmaking, temporarily retiring from the music business and moving to Copenhagen, Denmark.[2] Murphy was offered a full-time job with Elektra Records as an in-house producer but declined, choosing to remain in the Minneapolis area.[3]

He produced Bonnie Raitt's 1971 debut album for Warner Bros. Records. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Murphy led the R&B, blues and rock group Willie and the Bees.[3]

Murphy performed on piano, bass, guitar and other instruments as a session musician for Raitt, Koerner, Greg Brown, Prudence Johnson, Little Milton, and many others. He formed the Atomic Theory Records label in 1985 and released albums by himself, Phil Heywood, Boiled in Lead, Larry Long, and various world music artists.[4]

The Minnesota Music Hall of Fame inducted Murphy along with Bob Dylan and Prince in its charter class in 1990.[3] In 2008, Murphy was inducted into the Minnesota Blues Hall of Fame.[5]

In 2010, St. Paul, Minnesota, mayor Chris Coleman declared July 2 "Willie Murphy Day".[6]

Murphy's double-CD release A Shot of Love in a Time of Need/Autobiographical Notes reached number 14 in Billboard's Top Blues Albums chart in 2010.

On January 13, 2019, Murphy died of pneumonia, brought on by numerous health problems, at the age of 75.[7]

In 1969, Twin Cities musicians Willie Murphy and “Spider” John Koerner recorded “Running, Jumping, Standing Still,” an album that married Murphy’s love of the blues and Koerner’s folk inclinations.
