Ali-Ollie Woodson (born Ollie Creggett on September 12, 1951 in Detroit, Michigan) is an American R&B singer, songwriter, and keyboardist.

Tenure with The Temptations

He is most notable for being lead singer of Motown act The Temptations from 1984 to 1986, and from 1988 to 1996. While in the group, he co-wrote, co-produced and sang lead on the 1984 Temptations single "Treat Her Like a Lady", which was a #2 hit on the U.S. R&B charts. His last Temptations album was 1995's For Lovers Only.

Even though he is no longer a member of the Temptations, he toured with them in Japan in 2002 while member Barrington "Bo" Henderson was unable to accompany the group due to visa problems.

Post-Temptations

Since leaving the group, Woodson began a solo career, and often toured with a Temptations-like revue called Ali-Ollie Woodson & the Emperors of Soul (Emperors of Soul being the name of the Tempts' 1994 box set).

The Temptations Revue featuring Dennis Edwards

From 2006-2008, he was in The Temptations Revue featuring Dennis Edwards, although he and Edwards were never Tempts members at the same time. Woodson also toured with Aretha Franklin in 2008.
