The lead singer of The Temptations, Bruce Williamson, has passed away after his battle against coronavirus.
The legendary band’s frontman was 49 years old when he died at his home in Las Vegas, Nevada, according to TMZ.
It was in 2006 when Williamson rose to fame after joining The Temptations and sang with the group on television and concerts until 2015.
His son, also named Bruce, paid tribute to his loving father on Facebook.
He said: “There’s no words in the world that can express how I feel right now I love you Daddy thank you for being awesome thank you for being loving thank you for being Who You Are I pray to God and we will meet again.
“I love you Daddy R.I.H KING WILLIAMSON.”
It was in 1960 when The Temptations was launched in Detroit with David Ruffin, Eddie Kendricks, Melvin Franklin, Paul Williams, and Otis Williams.
Their famous songs were Ain’t Too Proud To Beg, The Way You Do the Things You Do, and My Girl.
Williamson joined the group in 2006 and he toured with the band until 2015.
After leaving the group, Williamson used his energy to sing the soul music he cherished as a child.
In a 2016 interview with Chapter & Verse Network, he said: “I never lost the dream of wanting to be a Temptation.
“But I didn’t want to be an imitation or one who impersonates my predecessors. I wanted to be myself.”
Williamson also collaborated with the Blackberry Jam and worked on a gospel project with the members before he passed away.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Williamson’s family during this difficult time. Rest in peace!
