The Chi-Lites notable songs include the #1 Pop hit “Oh Girl” and R&B #1 hit “Have You Seen Her”. The Chi-Lites were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2005. While never gaining the popularity as other Soul groups such as The Temptations, their legacy remains strong due to newer artist sampling their music. The Chi-Lites have been sampled by artists such as: Beyonce, Jay-Z, Mc Hammer, and Paul Wall.
Personally as a fan and lifelong Chicagoan, Robert “Squirrel” Lester commitment to The Chi-Lites and to Soul Music as a whole is greatly appreciated and will be missed.
The Fresh Music Page would like to extend our condolences to the family of Robert “Squirrel” Lester.souce
