Born on 21.09.1945, in Jackson, Mississippi.
After serving in the Vietnam War with the Marines, Cameron joined Motown act The Spinners as lead singer. He sang both lead parts on their first big hit, 1970's "It's a Shame", co-written and produced by Stevie Wonder, and remained with Motown as a solo artist when The Spinners left Motown in 1971. Although Cameron was not a major-seller for the label, he did have a hit with "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday", the theme song of the 1975 film Cooley High, which was later covered by Boyz II Men.
Cameron left Motown after the 1970s, and toured as an independent artist. He recorded a critically-acclaimed album for Malaco Records in 1983 and his career was revived in 1989 by recordings for British record companies Ardent (owned at the time by Paul Mooney) and Motorcity (owned by Ian Levine). He returned to The Spinners from 2000 to 2002, and also recorded another solo album.
He replaced Barrington "Bo" Henderson in 2003 as one of the lead singers of The Temptations. He was one of the voices on their album, "Reflections". Cameron sang lead on the album track "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)" which was nominated for a Grammy in 2007. Cameron left The Temptations in June 2007 to focus on his group, The G.C. Cameron Review.
On Saturday May 17, 2008 Cameron made a special guest appearance at a benefit concert for Hold on to Education Foundation Inc. in South Jersey.  He received proclamations from New Jersey State Senator Diane Allen; and Mayor Jacqueline Jennings, with Councilman Eddie Campbell, Jr. of Willingboro NJ. Cherry Hill High School West A Cappella vocal group Men of Note paid tribute to Cameron in honor of his contribution to American Popular Music and his dedication to youth education. In late 2008, he appeared on the PBS special, "Love Train: The Sound of Philadelphia," singing The Spinners' hit: The Rubberband Man.
