Bruce Williamson, an R&B and soul singer who once led The Temptations, died at Mountain View Hospital from COVID-19 on Sunday, according to a family spokesperson.

He was 49 years old.

Williamson's son, Bruce Williamson Jr., confirmed his father's passing in a post to Facebook early Monday morning.

"There's no words in the world that can express how I feel right now," the post states. "I love you Daddy, Thank you for being awesome thank you for being loving thank you for being Who You Are."

Williamson joined The Temptations in 2006 and left the group in 2015. He sang lead on their albums "Back to the Front" and "Still Here."

The vocal group continues to perform with founding member Otis Williams.

More recently, Williamson was a member of the band "Sons Of Soul" which has performed in various venues throughout the Las Vegas valley.
