Silhouette Singer Dies

The Rev. John “Bootsie” Wilson, a former lead singer and last surviving member of The Silhouettes, died at his home in Spartanburg, S.C., Sept. 21.

Wilson, 69, joined the soul group in 1961 after the original lead singer left the group.

The Silhouettes are probably best known for the 1958 No. 1 hit “Get a Job,” which Wilson re-recorded with the group 10 years later.
