Soul singer Cuba Gooding Sr. dies
Soul singer Cuba Gooding Sr, the father of Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr, has died, APA reported citing Independent.
Gooding Jr's publicist confirmed the death of the 72-year-old, who was the lead singer of soul group The Main Ingredient and had a brief solo career with Motown Records.
His body was reportedly found in a parked car in the San Fernando Valley in California on Thursday afternoon.
Los Angeles Police Department did not name Gooding Sr, but confirmed it investigated the death of a man found in a car on Ventura Boulevard, Woodland Hills, at around 1pm.
A police spokesman said there was “no indication of foul play or homicide” and the case had been passed to the coroner.
Gooding Sr's biggest hits with The Main Ingredient were 'Everybody Plays The Fool' in 1972 and 'Just Don't Want To Be Lonely', in 1974.
His son Cuba, who won the best supporting actor Oscar in 1997 for his role in Jerry Maguire, spoke about his father during an episode of Inside the Actors Studio earlier this year.
