James ``Jimmy'' Newman, celebrity son, 36



LAS VEGAS (AP) - James ``Jimmy'' Newman, the son and manager of singer
Gladys Knight, died Saturday. He was 36.

The cause of death was not released. The coroner said it appears that
Newman died of natural causes. An autopsy was pending.

Newman managed his mother's career through his Newman Management Inc., one
of four Knight-related companies sharing offices in Southern Nevada.

This year, Newman helped his mother launch Many Roads, a specialty record
label formed to support her recent gospel album, ``Many Different Roads,''
and other gospel artists.

According to the album's media materials, Newman brought many of the songs
to Knight's attention, including ``Jesus' Love Is Like a River,'' a song
co-written by Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch.
