R&B singer Richard Street died early Wednesday at St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Las Vegas, CNN reports. He's the second former member of the Temptations to pass away this month -- just 10 days after Damon Harris on Feb. 18. "They're dancing up there in heaven, him and Damon," his widow, Cindy Street, said. "I'm in disbelief right now."

Street, who will be remembered for songs including "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone," "Hey Girl,"  "Heavenly," "Superstar" and "Masterpiece," performed 45 concert dates in Europe just last fall.
