It takes copious vision, fortitude, good fortune and common sense to arrive at such a point. Eddie Levert and Walter Williams, star lead singers of The O’Jays since they debuted as The Mascots in 1958, have set that marker with a farewell tour in progress and a final 9-song album, definitively titled…The Last Word.
