Major Harris was a member of several groups, including the Delfonics, Frankie Lymon's Teenagers and others. But he's best known for his romantic 1975 hit "Love Won't Let Me Wait."
His sister says he died this past Friday in Richmond, Virginia from congestive heart and lung failure. Harris was with the Delfonics in the early 1970s - but left in 1974 for a solo career.
"Love Won't Let Me Wait" went gold and rose as high as number five on the pop charts.
