Temptations singer Ali-Ollie Woodson dies at 58

DETROIT, MI

Motown Alumni Association President Billy Wilson says Woodson died Sunday in southern California after battling cancer. He says Woodson's wife, Juanita, told him about the death.

Woodson wasn't an original member of The Temptations but helped keep them from becoming a nostalgia act.

Woodson joined the group after it produced classic hits in the 1960s and '70s that included "Papa Was a Rolling Stone," "My Girl" and "I Wish It Would Rain."

But his fiery voice helped the group notch "Treat Her Like a Lady" and other R&B hits from 1984 to 1986.
