DETROIT (AP) — Four Tops lead singer Levi Stubbs, who possessed one of the most dynamic and emotive voices of all the Motown singers, died Friday at 72.
Stubbs, who was the voice of the invasive alien plant species "Audrey II" in the movie "Little Shop of Horrors," had been ill recently and died in his sleep at the Detroit house he shared with his wife, said Dana Meah, the wife of Stubbs’ grandson.
