Damian Dame was an American R&B duo, who enjoyed a brief period of success in the early 90's before tragedies cut short their careers. The group consisted of Debra Jean "Deah Dame" Hurd (September 20, 1958 – June 27, 1994) and Bruce Edward "Damian" Broadus (September 13, 1966 – June 27, 1996).

Career[edit]

In 1991, the group became the first act signed to LaFace Records, founded by Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, for whom Hurd once sang backup. The duo released their self-titled debut on May 14, 1991, yielding the singles "Right Down to It" and "Exclusivity", peaking at 90 and 42 on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively.

Hurd was killed in a car accident in Atlanta, Georgia on June 27, 1994. She was 35 years old.[1] Broadus died of colon cancer on June 27, 1996, exactly two years after Hurd's death and less than a week after his solo album was released. He was 29 years old.
