The Five Stairsteps Singer is Dead

Clarence Burke Jr. the lead singer, choreographer, and guitarist of the very popular ’70s soul group The Five Stairsteps, recently passed away from an undisclosed cause at age 62.

Burke was the lead singer of the group that hailed out of Chicago and consisted of five of his six siblings: Alohe Jean, Clarence Jr., James, Dennis, Kenneth or “Keni,” and briefly, Cubie.

The group, which oftentimes was referred to as ‘The First Family of Soul,” had a vocal sound that was comforting and mellow and this was very much evident in their 1970 hit “O-o-h Child” that got up to No. 392 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
