Bootie Wilson Dies

The A.P. reports the death Sept. 21 of John "Bootsie" Wilson, a former lead singer and last surviving member of the soul group the Silhouettes. He was 69 and lived in Spartanburg, S.C.

After leaving the Silhouettes, which is best known for its hit "Get a Job," Rev. Wilson moved to South Carolina in 1972 and became a minister. He served as an African Methodist Episcopal pastor for three decades at eight churches, the A.P. reported.

Here's a video of "Get a Job."
