Harris joined the hit R&B group in 1971, aged 21, following the departure of original member Eddie Kendricks, and sang lead vocals on some of the band's biggest tracks, including "Superstar (Remember How You Got Where You Are)," "Take a Look Around," "Masterpiece" and "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone," which won The Temptations three Grammy Awards.

He left the band in 1975, and went on to release several disco songs with his group Impact before retiring from music.

After he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in the 1990s, he set up the The Damon Harris Cancer Foundation in 2001 to raise awareness of the disease among African-American men.
