      The husband of Grammy-nominated British singer Corinne Bailey Rae has been found dead.

      Police say Jason Rae was found in an apartment in the northern English city of Leeds on Saturday. Officers are awaiting results of toxicology tests to determine the cause of death.

      A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of supplying him with drugs but has been released on bail, officials said.

      Thirty-one-year-old Jason Rae was a saxophonist with a funk band, the Haggis Horns.

      Bailey Rae's self-titled debut album sold more than 1 million copies in the U.S. after its release in 2006.

      The 29-year-old was nominated for song of the year at the Grammy Awards in both 2007 and 2008.

      Wow... this is truly sad

      She is one of my favorite singers and for her to deal with this is very heavy for anyone it's heavier for her because she is in the public eye.

      RIP to her husband and I hope she stays strong.

      Greetings MsLioness & JABOOM!

      It is truly sad indeed to know that this has happened. I wish sister Corinne all the best
      and ask that our ancestors give her the strength to deal with this sad time in her life and
      allow her to heal as well.

      Let's send positive prayers to this Queen so her spirit can be uplifted in her darkest hour
      of sorrow. May her husband have a peaceful transition and R.I.P.

      Much appreciation to you both for taking the time to share your valuable comments.

      Peace & Blessings!

      Bailey Rae Mourns Husband at Funeral
      (E! Online)


      Corinne Bailey Rae, joined by more than 100 mourners, including producer Mark Ronson, gathered in a Leeds church Wednesday afternoon to pay final respects to the songbird's late husband.

      The crowd had assembled at St. George's Church for the service honoring Jason Rae, the 31-year-old jazz musician who died last month from a suspected drug overdose.

      The 29-year-old widow was the last to leave the service, where she cut a noticeably gaunt figure. The Grammy winner kept her head down for the duration of her walk from the church to a waiting car.

      A hearse parked outside the grounds bore the word "Jason" spelled out in white flowers.

      Per the Daily Mail, after the roughly 90-minute funeral memorial, family and friends congregated in the nearby Wardrobe bar for a wake, the same location where Corinne and Jason held their wedding reception seven years ago.

      Ronson was among those attending the wake, having been a collaborator with the late Rae's band, Haggis Horns. In February, the group supported Ronson and Amy Winehouse during their performance at the Brit Awards, England's answer to the Grammys.

      Last week, Ronson commented on the saxophonist's death, calling it "such a sad, sad thing...he was an incredible dude, a lovely gentleman, one of the funniest f--king people ever."

      Rae was found dead in a Leeds apartment nearly two weeks ago. While a coroner testified in an inquest last week that a drug overdose was the most likely cause of death, a postmortem exam was inconclusive and police are currently awaiting the results of a toxicology report.
