Earlier we reported …

A forwarded email from (ex Supremes) singer Scherrie Payne by Ron Brewington of the Motown Alumni Association (MAA), brings a message of sadness that once again a former member of the Temptations has passed away.

This time it’s Richard Street. He was 70.

Greetings…I received the below sad message from Scherrie Payne this morning… Forwarded… FYI — Ron Brewington, Motown Alumni Association (MAA):

OMG!  Not again!  Just last week, Damon Harris, former member of the legendary Temptations, died in Baltimore.  Early this morning, at 6:45, I received a phone call that Richard Street, also, a former member of that illustrious group, died in Las Vegas after being hospitalized a couple of days ago.

Our group was supposed to do some dates with him in just 3 weeks in the United Arab Emirates.

May God rest his soul.  Richard was such a great, fun and talented person.
