Blues Musician. He was an award-winning Motown rhythm & blues musician, songwriter and producer who co-wrote the Jackson 5 hit "I'll Be There." He died in Duncanville, Texas, where he lived. Born Willie McKinley Hutchison in Los Angeles, California, he grew up in Dallas, Texas. In 1964, his debut single, "Love Has Put Me Down," was released by Soul City Records. His music soon caught the attention of The 5th Dimension, which recorded several of his songs. Best known for his work at Motown during the 1970s, he co-wrote "I'll Be There" for the Jackson 5, which became a No. 1 in 1970. A 1992 remake by Mariah Carey also topped the pop music chart. He also collaborated on the Jackson 5 hits "Got to Be There" and "Never Can Say Goodbye." His song, "California My Way," was a minor hit for The Main Ingredient. He released his own solo albums on the Motown label while producing or writing songs for other major performers, including Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and Diana Ross. He was a two-time Grammy nominee. He also wrote the score for such noted films as 1973's "The Mack" and 1974's "Foxy Brown." In recent years, he recorded on his own music label, GGIT.  (bio by: Always with Love)
