Ali-Ollie Woodson, who led ‘The Temptations‘ in the 1980s and ’90s, at Motown died on Sunday. He was 58-years-old. The singer was diagnosed with leukemia in 2008.
Woodson died in Southern California, after battling cancer according to hie wife, Juanita. Woodson sang lead on the song “Treat Her Like a Lady”
Although he was not an original member of the group, which had many changes since the 1960s,it was important for Woodson to keep ‘The Temptations‘active.
Woodson replaced Dennis Edwards, whose voice definedthe group during the 1970s. Woodson’s voice, like that of Edwards, helped the group notch R&B hits like “Treat her like a lady,” “Sail Away” and “Lady Soul,” from 1984 to 1986.
Here are some of the latest clips of Ollie from his website.
