Donnie Wahlberg, 47, shared his own sweet message as well as the trending hashtag, “#RIPTommyPage.” Danny Wood, 47, even voiced his sadness by posting a video clip of Tommy’s No. 1 hit “I’ll Be Your Everything” in 1990. The boy band has a ton of history with the late star, since Tommy’s single was co-written by NKOTB’s Jordan Knight, 46, and Danny. On top of that, it was co-produced by Donnie. The crew spent countless hours on the road with Tommy.
The NKOTB also shared a heartwarming tribute via their social media page, and several fans followed suit by sharing their own memories of the late star. One person wrote, “Goodbye Tommy Page. I loved you and your songs and will miss you. I had the privilege to meet you once and I will never forget it. RIP🌈.” Another sweetly added, “One of my favorite singers as a teenager past away. #riptommypage #TommyPage I’ll Be Your Everything will always play in my ❤️.”
An emotional Facebook post written by journalist Michael Musto stated that the “A Shoulder to Cry On” singer had been struggling with depression and died on March 3. His tragic death was later confirmed by Billboard. Tommy is survived by his husband, Charlie, their three kids, and his brother Jimmy Page. We’re keeping all of his loved ones in our thoughts during this tough time.
