    His group's names went from The Chanteurs to The Hi-lites to Marshall and the Chi-Lites to The Chi-Lites.
    He quit the group in 1976, came back in 1980 and quit again in 1988.
    He attempted a solo career in the late '70s that went nowhere.
    He became born again Christian and switched musical directions as a gospel singer.
    His songs have been sampled by Beyoncé Knowles and Paul Wall.
