Damian Dame was an American R&B duo, who enjoyed a brief period of success in the early 1990s 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).


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.
