Hi-Five Singer Tony Thompson dies at 31

Tony Thompson, former lead singer for the R&B platinum-selling quintet Hi-Five in the 1990s, was found dead outside an East Waco apartment complex Friday night. Waco police said his body was found by officers working security at the apartment complex. Thompson signed with Jive Records in 1990 as part of Hi-Five. The quintet’s self-titled debut album went multi-platinum and spawned the hits “I Like the Way (The Kissing Game),” “I Can’t Wait Another Minute” and “Just Another Girlfriend.” In 1992, the group found success again with the songs “She’s Playing Hard to Get” and “Quality Time.” Thompson released his solo debut, “Sexsational,” in 1995 after Hi-Five split and he was working on new material before passing.
