Amato eulogized Page as a magnetic soul and a true entertainer.

At the time of his death, Page was vice president of music partnerships at the Voice. He had also previously led artist partnerships, branded content, and events at Internet radio company Pandora.

Page also had been an executive at Warner Bros. Records. At the record label, he helped shape the careers of Michael Buble, Alanis Morissette, Josh Groban and Green Day.

Page started his music career as an artist at Sire Records. He topped the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in April 1990, with his song "I'll Be Your Everything." The singer co-wrote the song with Jordan Knight and Danny Wood, who was a member of Page's tourmates New Kids on the Block.

"So sad to hear about this," Knight wrote on Twitter, going ahead to wish Page's family his thoughts.

He was a graduate of New York University's Stern School of Business.
