Published Nov 11, 2012A former member of legendary Philadelphia soul group the Delfonics, singer Major Harris has passed away at the age of 65. Caused by congestive heart and lung failure, he died on Friday (November 9).
After performing in various groups in the '60s, Harris joined the Delfonics after the departure of Randy Cain in the early '70s. In that band, he performed on the hits "La-La (Means I Love You)" and "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)."
