Al GoodmanAl Goodman, California (CNN) – Al Goodman, who sang baritone soul classics as “Love on a Two Way Street” and “Special Lady”, died Monday, his family told CNN.

Goodman, 67, died of cardiac arrest during surgery to remove a tumor in the Hackensack Medical Center in New Jersey, according to her daughter, Rhonda Goodman.

Goodman was “joking and laughing” before her surgery, she said.

“There is grief in the world – in England, Germany and Japan,” said Marshall Thompson, head of the Chi-Lites, on Tuesday. “We are all in mourning for Al Goodman.”

Goodman was a member of Moments – a R & B group formed in Hackensack, New Jersey, in 1968 – along with Ray Brown and William Harry. They topped the charts in 1970 with the soul “Love in a two-way street” and again in 1975 with “Look at Me (I’m in Love).”

Last year, rapper Jay-Z show “Love in a two-way street” for his success, “Empire State of Mind.”

In 1978, the band changed its name to Ray, Goodman & Brown. A year later, attacked No. 1 with “Special Lady.” The group made regular appearances on the lists of soul in the 1980s. Her latest single went Top Ten in 1986.

Goodman is survived by his wife of 34 years, Henrietta, five children and one grandchild.

The funeral is scheduled for Monday at Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood, New Jersey.
