Just The Two Of Us songwriter Ralph Macdonald has passed away at the age of 67.
He died in Stamford, Connecticut on Sunday (18Dec11) after a long illness.
MacDonald was born in Harlem, New York in March, 1944 and he went on to land a job as a percussionist in Harry Belafonte's steel band, in which he played for nearly a decade.
He later founded his own publishing company, Antisia Music, and penned Where Is The Love for Roberta Flack, a tune that earned two Grammy Awards.
MacDonald earned another two Grammys of his own, as a performer and producer for Calypso Breakdown, which appeared on the soundtrack for 1977's Saturday Night Fever.
The star worked with a number of other popular artists throughout his career, including Billy Joel, Paul Simon, David Bowie, James Taylor, Aretha Franklin, Luther Vandross, Bette Midler, Quincy Jones, Diana Ross, the tragic Amy Winehouse and Grover Washington, Jr, for whom he wrote iconic songs Just the Two of Us and In the Name of Love.
MacDonald remained a working musician almost up until his death, only sidelining his projects in recent years after suffering a stroke and being diagnosed with lung cancer.
