Jesse Lorenzo Belvin  (December 15, 1932 – February 6, 1960)

Belvin was a R&B singer, pianist and songwriter who scored with the hit song 
“Goodnight, My Love” in 1956. His success was cut short at age 27 when he
was killed in a head-on collision at Hope, Arkansas along with his wife and
the driver of their car. They were trying to quickly leave the first ever mixed
race audience pop concert in Little Rock after death threats had been made
against Belvin.
