Williamson joined the band in 2007, replacing the departing tenor G.C. Cameron, and left in 2015.

The lineup of The Temptations changed frequently since the original group formed nearly 60 years ago. The act remains best known for its string of 1960s hits, including “My Girl” (1964) and “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” (1966).
