Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Major Harris (born Major Harris III, February 9, 1947, Richmond, Virginia) is an American R&B singer associated with the Philadelphia soul sound. In his early career Harris sang with groups such as The Charmers, The Teenagers, The Jarmels, and Nat Turner's Rebellion, which also featured his brother, Philly songwriter Joseph B. Jefferson, and recorded a few solo 7" records on the Laurie and Okeh labels. In the early 1970s he took over from Randy Cain as a member of The Delfonics; he quit the group to go solo in 1974. Signing with Atlantic Records, Harris scored a string of R&B hits in the U.S., including the Top Ten single "Love Won't Let Me Wait," which peaked at #5 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. Written by Bobby Eli and Vinnie Barrett, "Love Won't Let Me Wait" was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. on 25 June 1975.show more
