L.J. Reynolds

Dionne Warwick rushed to hospital ... It’s been a difficult 2015 for the family of the late Whitney Houston. Just one week prior to the singer’s daughter being found unconscious in a bathtub, her cousin Dionne Warwick had a bad fall in the shower, TMZ reports. According to the celebrity website, the accident occurred on Jan. 24 in Warwick’s New Jersey home — 911 was called at 10:19AM. The 911 call for Bobbi Kristina came seven days after, at 10:25AM, making the similarities in both cases eerie. The 74-year-old songwriter was taken to a nearby hospital, and immediately had surgery on her ankle. She was released two weeks after. If Warwick’s accident wasn’t enough for her to handle, she also has to deal with Bobbi Kristina’s tragic situation. According to HollywoodLife.com, the ‘Walk on By’ singer is taking it very hard. “Dionne is inconsolable over this situation and she has been on her knees for days, begging for Bobbi Kristina to pull through,” revealed a source of the website. “She has gone through this before with Whitney and it nearly killed her. To think Bobbi Kristina won’t make it through will rip poor Dionne to shreds.” more at boombox

L.J. Reynold's biography:
Vocalist L.J. Reynolds hovered on the edge of stardom in the '80s, but never made the major single or album he needed to explode as a solo artist. Reynolds had some good singles in the early '60s, when he was recording for Tri-Spin as Larry "Chubby" Reynolds. He moved to Mainstream in 1969, then was lead vocalist for The Relations in 1970. After cutting singles for several small independents and landing one Law-ton single in the R&B Top 30 ("Let One Hurt Do" in 1971), Reynolds replaced William Howard in The Dramatics in 1973, remaining with them until 1980. He then signed a solo deal with Capitol, and his LPs were frequently well received, but never sold very well. Only the song "Touch Down" among his many Capitol releases ever reached the R&B Top 30. Reynolds rejoined The Dramatics in 1986. Since the recent death of Ron Banks, LJ is now the lead singer with the surviving Dramatics group in 2015.
