Las Vegas legend Danny impressionist Gans has died, Access Hollywood has confirmed.

The entertainer — often referred to as the “Man of Many Voices” — died in his sleep early Friday morning. He was 52.

A family member who reportedly said Gans was having trouble breathing placed a call to 911 early Friday morning, but the impressionist died before help could arrive.

Gans, who was named “Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year” 11 times in a row, did not perform on Thursday night.

A former professional baseball player whose career was cut short by injury, Gans began performing in Las Vegas in 1996. Vegas mogul Steve Wynn hired Gans to work at the Mirage in 2000, where he performed until moving to Wynn’s Encore resort in 2009.

How could he die in his sleep if a family member called to say he was having trouble breathing? You would think they talked or something. And yes, prayers for the family.
