The country song "Nobody Knows" was sung by Kevin Sharp. This was a country adaptation of the Tony Rich Project's earlier version of the same song. It became the most popular single on Sharp's November 1996 debut album, "Measure of a Man," maintaining a top position on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks chart for 4 weeks.Continue Reading
Sharp's music career was supported by music producer and songwriter David Foster, whom he met through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Sharp was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in 1989 while in high school, and he underwent 2 years of chemotherapy before the cancer went into remission. Foster provided support for Sharp both during and after this period, particularly in assisting the singer in recovering from a painkiller addiction. Sharp honored the positive influence of the Make-A-Wish Foundation by having its logo tattooed on his chest.
It was in the mid-1990s that Sharp received his first record deal and achieved success with "Nobody Knows," followed by "She's Sure Taking It Well" and "If You Love Somebody."
He died at home in 2014, aged just 43, due to complications associated with the cancer he suffered earlier in his life. A fund for the Make-A-Wish Foundation was set up through his website for members of the public to make donations.Learn more about Investing
