Tameka “Tiny” Harris is mourning the loss of her father Charles Walter Pope. He passed away in his Atlanta, Georgia home at 76 after enduring a long battle with Alzheimer’s.
A few years ago, Tiny hosted an Alzheimer’s benefit in Atlanta and was able to raise monies to go to research about the deadly disease. He was an original member of the Tams, an Atlanta-based R&B group he formed with his brother in 1959. He performed with the group until May 2009.
Check out a few pictures of Tiny, Pope and her brother, Albert “Redd” Cottle, sharing a rare and intimate moment on stage singing together at her benefit. -Joi Pearson
