MARK KAMINS, who will forever be remembered as having discovered MADONNA, died THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14th following what was described as "a massive coronary." He was 57.
It was KAMINS who took MADONNA's demo to SIRE RECORDS honcho SEYMOUR STEIN, who immediately signed her.
In a statement to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, MADONNA said, "I'm very sorry to hear about MARK's death. I haven't seen him for years but if it weren't for him, I might not have had a singing career. He was the first DJ to play my demos before I had a record deal. He believed in me before anyone else did. I owe him a lot. May he Rest in Peace."
