CMU reports the following:
American R&B singer John Whitehead, best known for the 1979 hit song 'Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now', has been shot dead in Philadelphia in a bizarre seemingly motiveless crime. Whitehead - once a member of the Otis Redding managed Epsilons, and a prolific songwriter - was shot while working on his car in the street with a friend, Ohmed Johnson.
With no suspects in the case, Whitehead's 33 year old daughter Dawn yesterday said to reporters: "Why did they do this to my dad? I just talked to him yesterday. He was a fun person. Who would want to kill him?"
