Corinne Bailey Rae's husband found dead
The husband of the Grammy-winning soul singer Corinne Bailey Rae has been found dead from a suspected drugs overdose.
Jason Rae, a 31-year-old saxophonist with the Haggis Horns, was discovered at a flat in the Hyde Park area of Leeds on Saturday by police called to the scene. West Yorkshire Police said that a 32-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of supplying controlled drugs. He was later released on bail pending further inquiries.
A postmortem examination was performed on Saturday night, but the results were inconclusive and the police are waiting for the results of toxicology tests, a police spokesman said.
The Haggis Horns had been due to play at the HiFi Club in Leeds last night. The club confirmed that the concert had been cancelled. Ms Bailey Rae was not available for comment. Her record label said in a statement: “EMI Records would like to offer its sincere condolences to Corinne Bailey Rae and the Rae family at this tragic time. We ask that the media respects Corinne’s privacy and that of her entire family.”

Ms Bailey Rae has always insisted that she has never taken drugs. Earlier this year she backed a project for young people who were asked to use their song-writing abilities to help in the war against drugs.
At the time she said: “Helping to raise awareness among teenagers about the danger of drugs is vital, and combining this with the chance to showcase local song-writing talent is a great idea. The impact of drugs in our local communities cannot be underestimated.”
Born in Leeds, the singer studied English literature at Leeds University. She met her future husband while working as a cloakroom attendant at a soul club in the city and they married in 2001 when she was 22.
Ms Bailey Rae’s breakthrough came in 2004 when she signed to the record label Global Talent Publishing. A year later she released her debut singleLike a Star and her first album. Her second album, Corinne Bailey Rae, followed in 2006. This year she won a Grammy for her work on Herbie Hancock’s album River: The Joni Letters.
Her husband’s band released their debut album, Hot Damn!, last September and were due to complete a number of gigs across the country over the next few weeks.

That's really sad Shame how drugs can get the best of people who would otherwise have much brighter prospectives. R.I.P

Oh, off topic but I had no idea she was married! She looks startlingly young.
