Al Wilson died of kidney failure on Monday at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fontana, CA. The soul singer, best known for such '70s hits as "La La Peace Song," "Count the Days," and the chart-topping "Show and Tell," was 68.
"He was always singing," Wilson's son, Tony Wilson, said in a statement. "He would call me in the middle of the night with a new song that he had written."
Wilson is survived by his wife, Patricia; daughters Alene Harris and Sharon Burley; his brother, Eddie Wilson; sisters Lottie Ross, Ruby Conyers and Maebell Cole, and 13 grandchildren.
