If you Remember The Main Ingredient.....

The lead vocalist of The Main Ingredient, Cuba Gooding, Sr. was found dead recently.  They suspect it was a drug overdose.  He was 72 years ago.  Cuba Gooding, Jr. looks just like his dad (to me).  R.I.P.

 

Does anyone remember the group?

Yes, I remember them. I didn't know they were father and son, though. Very sad.

@SaRina and yes, how about Just Don't Wanna Be Lonely?

 

Cuba Jr., is an actor and is still living. Don't think he sang, like his dad did back in the 70's.

Cuba Gooding, Jr. won an Oscar in the movie.

 

Gooding won the best supporting actor Oscar for "Jerry Maguire" at the 69th Academy Awards. His excitement was apparent as he delivered an impassioned speech where he thanked everyone. "Tom Cruise! I love you, I love you brother!"

Yes, I remember watching them on Soul Train way back when (that's where I learned how to dance; always wanted to be in that line dance at the end, lol).... and I know who Cuba Gooding, Jr. is -- I was just never aware of the connection between the two.

@MickD it's possible.  I know he did play in a film with Beyonce entitled "Fighting Temptations" that was Gospel related.

 

I just remember, Jr. from acting.....if he sang gospel, I'll want to check it out.
