Happy Birthday, Major Harris

Today we commemorate the birthday of the late, great Major Harris, born February 9, 1947. Major died on November 9, 2012

Virginia native Major Harris was a talented singer who was part of many notable vocal groups, but who is mostly known for one of the most popular songs ever to come out of Philadelphia, the smash ballad "Love Won't Let Me Wait."

The cousin of famous Philly producer/guitarist and Trammps co-founder Norman Harris and the brother of noted songwriter Joe Jefferson ("Mighty Love," "One of a Kind (Love Affair)"), Major Harris performed in Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers after their commercial peak but made his first real mark as a member of the Delfonics, where he stayed a couple years in the early 70s before leaving to embark upon a solo career.
