(Radio.com) Dennis Edwards, the former lead singer of the legendary Motown group the Temptations, has died at age 74. Family members confirmed Edwards' passing last week (Feb. 2), just one day before what would have been his 75th birthday, reports CBS News.

No cause of death has yet been revealed. Edwards joined the Temptations in 1968 after original member, David Ruffin, was fired from the group. The singer appeared on such timeless Temptations' classics as "Papa Was A Rolling Stone," "Ball Of Confusion" and "I Can't Get Next To You."

Edwards remained with the Temptations until 1977, returning to the fold for 1980 album, The Temptations, which featured the hit single "Power." Read more here.
