NEW YORK (AP) – Tommy Page, a former pop star whose song “I’ll Be Your Everything” went to No. 1 and who later became a record company executive, has died. He was 46.

Billboard.com’s Denise Warner said Page was found dead Friday in New York of an apparent suicide. Page started at the magazine in 2011.
