Abdul “Duke” Fakir, the sole surviving original member of the Four Tops, recently was honored as a “Living Legend.” St. Peter’s AME Church in South Minneapolis on February 23 honored Fakir during its first annual Living Legend Sunday morning service.

Keith went back to his crib. Grabbing the phone, giving Butch and Sundance a wink, he rang Lesli’s number. A man’s voice answered.
