Al Goodman, who sang with the Moments and Ray, Goodman and Brown, died Monday in a Hackensack hospital.
67-year-old Goodman suffered heart failure during a surgery to remove a tumor, his daughter Rhonda confirmed to CNN. Prior to the surgery, his daughter says he was in good spirits, “laughing and joking.” CNN spoke to fellow soul singer Marshall Thompson about Goodman’s passing:
“There’s mourning all over the world — in England, in Germany and in Japan,” said Marshall Thompson, leader of the Chi-Lites, on Tuesday. “We’re all mourning for Al Goodman.”
Along with the Moments, Goodman topped 70s charts with hits like “Love on a Two Way Street” and “Look at Me (I’m in Love).” “Love on a Two Way Street” was revived last year when Jay-Z sampled it for his mega-hit “Empire State of Mind.” Goodman is survived by his wife of over three decades, Henrietta, five children and a grandchild.
