Statement From Anant Singh On The Passing Of Music Legend James Ingram

It was with deep sadness that I learnt of the passing of James Ingram.

He had an amazing velvet smooth voice and was a giant in the music industry. I am delighted to have known him, having been introduced to him by our mutual friend, Quincy Jones who is also very distraught about his passing.

We subsequently worked together when he did the song ‘One More Time’ for the end title sequence for our film, SARAFINA!.

We send his family our sympathies and love, as we celebrate his remarkable life and talent.

Tom Hanks presented Alan Alda with the 55th Life Achievement Award, following a filmed salute to one of the world’s most respected and beloved actors. A filmed “In Memoriam” tribute honored the SAG-AFTRA members lost during 2018. In keeping with the SAG Awards tradition of highlighting the work of SAG-AFTRA members, SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris introduced a montage that saluted the memorable 25-year history of the SAG Awards.

In a poetic gesture, the final award of the evening was presented by Jodie Foster, who was the first ever to receive an Actor® for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role.
