Alabama-Born Lead Singer of Temptations has Died

Alabama-Born Lead Singer of Temptations has Died

His family confirmed his death to CBS Chicago on Friday, Feb. 2.

In more recent years, Edwards toured with a "Temptations" splinter group called The Temptations Review featuring Dennis Edwards.

It didn't take long for The Temptations to win critical and commercial acclaim during the Edwards era. Our thoughts are with Dennis' family and friends during this hard time.

Edwards was born in Fairfield, Alabama in February 1943.

Edwards joined the Temptations in 1968 and had a number of hits including two Grammy award-winning songs, Papa Was a Rollin' Stone and Cloud Nine.

He parted ways with The Temptations in 1977, around the time the group left the legendary Motown label to sign with Atlantic Records. Their daughter, Issa Pointer, later joined her mother's group.

The Temptations received a Lifetime Achievement Grammy in 2013 that Edwards received along with Otis Williams and survivors of the departed group members. He also had a few solo R&B hits, such as his duet with Siedah Garrett, "Don't Look Any Further".
