Brownstone singer Charmayne “Maxee” Maxwell passed away over the weekend. The singer’s untimely death was confirmed by her brother, Brandon Maxwell, who expressed that she “died in the most terrible way.”
“Bad things happened to the most innocent people. My sister died in the most terrible way and I’m in so much pain right now,” the singer’s grieving brother tweeted.
“I’m so [devastated] because you deserved to stay on this earth much longer,” he went on to say. You had such an amazing talent and you went really far with your singing career. I felt so inspired from you and it gave me motivation to become the best performer I could be. I love you so much sis, I’m so grateful I was able to have you in my life.”
