Karaoke lovers in Atlanta are today mourning the passing of karaoke jockey Darrell Russell, perhaps better known to his fans and well-wishers as “Mister D”.

From the article, courtesy of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Mister D’s business partner, Fredrick “Leo” Spears, said:

“He really just wanted to see people have fun. If he could have made everybody happy and taken care of everybody he met, that would have made him happy.”

Our hearts go out to Mister D’s family, friends and fans, and hope that wherever he may be, there are always great tunes, clear microphones, and a slot forever open in the rotation.
