Langston George was a member of the R&B group Gladys Knight and the Pips from 1959 to 1962. He was a close friend of lead singer Gladys Knight and joined the group after her cousins, Brenda Knight and Eleanor Guest, left to get married. George co-wrote several of the group's early hits, including "Every Beat of My Heart" and "Letter Full of Tears."
He left the group in 1962 for personal reasons. He later said that he was struggling with addiction and that he needed to take some time away from the music industry. George eventually got sober and went on to work as a music producer and songwriter. He also continued to perform as a solo artist.
George died in 2007 at the age of 67.
