Wade had a successful career in music before he ventured into television. In 1961, he had three consecutive Billboard top 10 hits for his songs "Take Good Care of Her," "The Writing on the Wall" and "As If I Didn't Know."
When Wade began hosting the daily afternoon game show Musical Chairs on CBS in 1975, he was the first Black man to host a game show on any network, something the New York Times referred to as breaking "the color line" in a 1975 article.
Among Wade's other credits, he acted in the 1982 film Kiss Me Goodbye and 1979 television series The Super Globetrotters. His last acting role was Reverend Lovejoy in the 2020 film Drug Affected.
Wade's music was also used for the soundtrack for a handful of films, including Brother on the Run, A Bronx Tale and Speedway Junkie.
He starred in a stage production of Guys and Dolls in 1978, and hosted the talk show Mid-Morning LA. In 1979, he co-starred with Della Reese in a production of Same Time, Next Year. On TV he was seen in the soap operas The Guiding Light and Search for Tomorrow, and was a familiar presence on such popular black-oriented sitcoms as Sanford & Son, What's Happening!!, The Jeffersons (Dr. Greg Martin Episode: Three Faces of Florence), and Good Times (Willona's boyfriend Frank Mason Episodes: Willona's New Job & Willona's Mr. Right).
Wade is survived by Jeree, his wife of 33 years, and their children Jamel Wade, 61, and Patrice L. Wade, 64, as well as son Sheldon W. Wade, 65, whom he shared with first wife Kay A. Wade.We Africa Proud https://wap.org.ngAuthor: adex3g 2 months
