I can't say I knew John that well, but I will always remember my time with him fondly. It was immediately obvious to me and I think to anybody who knew John that he was one of the warmest, kindest, funniest, and most genuine people you could be blessed enough to meet. My best memory would have to be our drive from Chicago to Miami a few years ago. We laughed (and slept...) the whole way down there. When we hit Atlanta, John was at the wheel and must have been a few miles over the speed limit. At around 3am a cop pulls us over, looks us up and down, enquires as to our occupation and destination. "Singer, musicians going to Miami for the conference." "Oh yeah? Well let me hear you sing your way out of this one." Without missing a beat John belted out a melodramatically heart-wrenching accapella asking for forgiveness, understanding, and a bit of good humor. He had the cop (and the rest of us passengers) cracking up and impressed. Needless to say we made it to Miami stinky, smiling, and ticket free.... John, you'll be missed dearly. Rest in peace my friend.

I was no one to John Redmond because I never left Europe but I always loved all the music coming from Chicago House community and John was part of it. I have "Darker Side" and "Rise" here. He sounds so right and so nice. God made him that way and I'm sad he took him away. - Love to all the House Community, and love to his family - Phil [Mons-Belgium]

John is definitely a great singer and an amazing song writer. But above all, he is one wonderful man and definitely a very great friend. I'm honored that I had the chance to know him, though not as long as I would've liked. I will truely miss John. -Kenny Carvajal

My grandfather died of a heart attack .. they say these things skip generations.. I myself am very scared of being subject to this... My thoughts and prayers go out to john @ this moment... i pray he did "Rise". Peace to u and yours. -- Chris

Not only a singer and an impressive voice dedicated to House music, John was a tender and honnest person. We'll miss him so much.
