The Moments, which included Harry Ray and William Brown, formed in 1968 and went on to have hits with 1970's 'Love on a Two Way Street' and 1975's 'Look at Me (I'm in Love).' After leaving their label, Stang, in 1979, the group had to legally abandon the Moments moniker and opted to record as Ray, Goodman and Brown. With the new name, the group recorded 'Special Lady,' which also went to No. 1 on the R&B charts.
Despite Ray's passing in 1992, the group continued to perform in recent years with various other members. They sang on Alicia Keys' hit 'You Don't Know My Name' and 'Love on a Two Way Street' was sampled by Jay-Z on 'Empire State of Mind.'
"There's mourning all over the world -- in England, in Germany and in Japan. We're all mourning for Al Goodman," said Marshall Thompson, leader of the Chi-Lites, according to CNN.
Goodman's funeral will take place next Monday at Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood, N.J. He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Henrietta, five children and one grandchild.
