Belita Karen Woods (October 23, 1948 – May 14, 2012)
Belita Woods was a lead singer of the late 1970s R&B group, Brainstorm that had a disco hit in 1977 called “Lovin’ Is Really My Game”. Their follow-up album, 1978’s Journey To The Light, featured a more soul-funk sound, anchored by the album tracks “We’re On Our Way Home” and “If You Ever Need To Cry”. Prior to joining Brainstorm, Woods released a single “Magic Corner”/”Grounded” on Detroit’s Moira label in 1967.

Woods began touring with the Pfunk All stars in 1992. In 2001 she sang on four songs (“Scratched”, “When Jack Met Jill”, “Relax”, “Tempovision”) on French DJ/producer Etienne de Crecy’s Tempovision album. The song “Scratched” was produced by fellow P-Funk mate Michael “Clip” Payne, who also sang on the song “Tempovision”. She had three solo songs on George Clinton’s  How Late Do U Have 2BB4UR Absent?, released in 2005: “Don’t Dance Too Close”, “More Than Words Can Say” and “Saddest Day”.

Woods died of heart failure on May 14, 2012
