When Casey Kasem calls you "The Voice," you can sing. Jimi Jamison, who passed away yesterday from a heart attack, could sing. Best known as the front man of Survivor, Jamison racked up his own hits and backed up some of the biggest artists of our time. He seems to have been loved by everyone who ever met him. From his jingle days to the height of his career, Jamison touched those around him with his humility as much as his talent. His work with Target, Cobra, and Survivor stands on its own. His hits with the latter group dominated radio in the 1980s. See next week's paper for an in-depth tribute to one of Memphis's great talents. Videos after the jump.
