To the baddest singer to ever grace a stage, hold a microphone and totally slay a song Ali Woodson. Wood the world is sadden to know that you’re no longer with us in body. Your passing has left me in a numb state of mind. There’s so many memories running through my mind like the first time I saw you perform with the Tempts at Radio City Music Hall in NY, you becoming the first artists to sign with Voice Distributions, our visit to Ground Zero after 911, us shopping in Harlem for clothes, you calling me at the radio station making my dream of performing and singing The Temptations songs come true by joining the Emperors of Soul, the sound checks, the shows and so much more. Wood there’s not a container large enough to hold the talent that God blessed you with. You were the definition of the word perfection. When you performed the fans got a great show, great singing and an ever lasting performance that stayed with them forever. Now you’ve gone to join your fellow Temptations Melvin, Paul, Eddie and David in heaven and I know those pearly gates are catching hell from the rush of angels running to see you guys perform. I’m going to continue taking my Love Zone listener to Ali Woodsonville, USA every chance I get by playing your music forever and keeping your spirit with me until we meet again. Thanks for your friendship.

Rest in peace my brother, rest in peace.
