Singing "Oh Girl" for the Final Time

The Shadow is sorry to report to you that on July 22, 2002, Eugene Record, the founder and lead singer of the soul group, the Chi-Lites, died after a long battle with cancer. He was 64 years old.

Many of us from the '60s remember the such classic Chi-Lites hits as "Oh Girl" and "Have You Seen Her?" They were real crooners with quite the stage appearance. Their songs had tunes that stayed with you long after you heard them.

In fact, Beyonce's 2003 hit song "Crazy in Love" was based on the Chi-Lites hit song "Are You My Woman?"

Eugene Record and his smooth voice will definitely be missed by the music world.
