    Ali-Ollie Woodson, the lead singer of Motown vocal quintet The Temptations through the 1980s and 1990s, has died. Woodson passed away on Sunday in Southern California after a long battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife Juanita.

    Woodson was not an original member of The Temps, but his work helped propel the band forward into new decades and preventing them from being a nostalgic act appealing to Baby Boomers. He was universally regarded as a true gentleman and a consummate professional. R.I.P., Mr. Woodson. You and your voice will be missed.

    What is your favorite Motown band? Favorite song by The Temptations?
