Kevin Sharp Dies; Country Singer Was 43

Kevin Sharp died Saturday due to complications from cancer, his mother sadly confirmed.

The country singer was 43 years old.

Sharp was diagnosed with this disease as a teenager. But even though his treatment did not lead to a reoccurrence, the artist's mother says her son suffered later in life due to the effects of radiation and chemotherapy.

"He had a good, strong heart. He's not hurting anymore,” Elaine Sharp told CNN Saturday night from her house in Fair Oaks, California.

Sharp, best known for the track “Nobody Knows,” traveled the country as a motivation speaker and passed away from “ongoing complications from past stomach surgeries and digestive issues," according to his official website.

Sharp was on the receiving end of the Make-A-Wish Foundation as a teenager and remained involved with the organization as as adult.

His site asks for donations to it in lieu of flowers or any other kind of gift.
