Charmayne “Maxee” Maxwell (pictured center), a member of the ’90s group Brownstone, passed away in Denmark on Saturday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The exact cause of death has not been released, but early reports say it is from a fall. She was 46 years old.

Maxwell was one of the three original members of Brownstone, who were signed to Michael Jackson‘s MJJ Music label in 1994. The group’s debut album, From the Bottom Up, which was certified platinum, featured the hit, “If You Love Me.” “If You Love Me” was nominated for a Grammy and won a Billboard Music Award in 1995.

Brownstone released another album, in 1997, and Maxwell later ventured into her own projects, says THR:

Charmayne later pursued a solo career, signing with Mercury Records in 2000. Her tune “When I Look Into Your Eyes” was a hit on the European charts.”

She is survived by her music-producer husband Carsten Soulshock and their son. Soulshock’s mother, who is Danish, told Danish publication Ekstra Bladet that Charmayne died in a fall.

TMZ reports that Maxwell was attending a soccer game in Denmark on Saturday when she fell, and a Danish media outlet described her death as an “accident.”

Her brother Brandon Maxwell, reportedly took to social media on Saturday and tweeted: “R.I.P my beautiful sister Charmayne ‘Maxee’ Maxwell — I can’t even believe I’m typing this right now..”

“Bad things happened to the most innocent people,” he continued. “My sister died in the most terrible way, and I’m in so much pain right now.”

Charmayne’s loved ones remain in our prayers.
