An Ohio singer/dancer, Jermaine Stewart
was on Soul Train as a teen during the years it was in Chicago. He later did background vocals for Shalamar
, Millie Jackson
, the Temptations
, and Boy George
before getting his own deal with Arista in the mid-'80s. He had three Top Ten R&B hits with Arista from 1984-1988, but his biggest hit, "We Don't Have to Take Our Clothes Off," was an R&B dud despite making it to number five on the pop charts. He died in 1997.
