Nathan East "Warren was one of the most gifted vocalists walking the earth! I am proud to have known him and worked a lot with him. Each year for the last four years we have played the Andre Agassi foundations benefit for children concerts in Las Vegas at the MGM grand arena, with David Foster as musical director. He brought the house down with Stevie Wonder’s Signed Sealed Delivered every time. We also enjoyed rehearsing where we could play many oldies but goodies hits and marvel at Warren’s performance which usually outdid the original artist. A fellow high school alumni, he said to me (the last time I saw him) that he remembers me playing at a function in the school gym and never forgot how impressed he was with my playing (I first met him at Crawford High School in San Diego in the early 70s.) What a sweet man! Now, he is at peace in his soul I'm sure. Gone but never forgotten." Nathan East
