Ali "Ollie" Woodson, the singer who fronted The Temptations during the 1980s and 1990s, died Sunday after battling cancer.
In late 2008, Ali Ollie Woodson was diagnosed with leukemia and hospitalized for several weeks.

The change had several line up changes and Woodson was not a part of the original group but played a critical role in making the band popular. The 60s and the 70s saw the Temptations post hits liker “Papa Was A Rolling Stone” ”My Girl” ”I Wish It would Rain” but they lost track in the 80s.

Woodson, originally from Detroit, was living in California, according to The Detroit News and Bossip. He co-wrote and was the lead singer of The Temptations' hit single "Treat her like a lady," which reached No. 2 on the R&B charts in 1984, according to Wikipedia.

Woodson officially ended his stint with The Temptations in 1986, but continued to return the group for guest spots through the years. He also performed as a solo artist and sang background on a host of other projects.

Funeral arrangements have not been announced at this time and family members have no released any statement to the media.
