Singer Colin Vearncombe, also known as Black, has died aged 53.

The pop singer had been involved in a car accident earlier this month, in which he suffered a serious head injury. He was placed in an induced coma and remained in a serious condition for over a week.

An announcement was made on his Facebook page on Tuesday evening, which read: “Colin Vearncombe, 26/5/1962 - 26/1/2016, you’ll never walk alone. A full statement will follow shortly.”

Black was born in Liverpool but had been living in Ireland. His fist gig was New Year’s Day, 1982 and his debut single 'Human Features' was released the same year. 

An erratic few years followed and he signed for WEA records in 1984, but the relationship was not fruitful and Black was dropped during the promotion period for the single ‘More Than The Sun.’

It was following this that Black wrote one of his most well-known songs, ‘Wonderful Life’, with record label A&M. It became an international hit following its release in 1987. His later work was not able to reach the same level of commercial success, though he was able to continue recording music, releasing 14 albums over the course of his life. His latest, ‘Blind Faith’, was released in 2015.
