Ali “Ollie” Woodson, a former lead singer of The Temptations, died Sunday in California. He was 58. Woodson had been battling cancer, said Billy Wilson, president and founder the Motown Alumni Association. Born Oct. 12, 1951, in Detroit, Woodson headed The Temptations for most of the 1980s and 90s.He wrote and sang lead on the 1984 hit “Treat Her Like a Lady.”
“He was an excellent singer,” Wilson said. “He’s one of the few singers who was accommodating to virtually everything. He had a style and swagger about himself that was different than the other Temptations.” Family members could not be reached for comment. Funeral services are pending.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. R.I.P.
