Trisco Pearson, one of the members of the R&B group Force M.D.s, has died after battling Stage 4 cancer.

According to the band’s Facebook page, a fundraising party was scheduled for October 1 to raise money for Pearson’s medical expenses. A GoFundMe page was also created days before his passing.

During the band’s heyday of the mid-to-late ’80s, they had several big hits including “Tears,” “Love Is A House” and “Tender Love,” which was featured in the 1985 film “Krush Groove,” starring some of the biggest rap acts of the time including Kurtis Blow, Run DMC, The Fat Boys, L.L. Cool J and Jekyll and Hyde. Sheila E. and New Edition also appeared in the film.

“Love Is a House,” reached the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s R&B Singles Chart in September of 1987.

The number of group members fluctuated over the years, but the band originally consisted of three brothers: Stevie D., Antoine “T.C.D.” Lundy, and Rodney “Khalil” Lundy, along with their uncle Jessie Lee Daniels. Pearson joined the group in the early 80s, along with Charles “Mercury” Nelson.

Pearson is the fourth member of the group to pass away.
