(AP) The Rev. John "Bootsie" Wilson, a former lead singer and last surviving member of the soul group The Silhouettes, has died. He was 69.

Wilson died Sept. 21 at his home in Spartanburg, South Carolina, after batting cancer and a kidney ailment, his wife, Pauline, said.

The Philadelphia native joined The Silhouettes in 1961, after the original lead singer left the group, perhaps best known for the 1958 smash hit "Get a Job," which stayed at No. 1 for 13 consecutive weeks. It was among the first rhythm and blues songs to cross over and become No. 1 on the pop charts. - more on this story
