Chicago vocalist Finis Henderson was the lead singer for Weapons of Peace before going solo after moving to Los Angeles in the early '80s. His father was a dancer and also vice-president of Sammy Davis Enterprises, as well as manager for such artists as Jerry Butler and Brook Benton. Henderson sang with The Dynamic 4 as a teen before joining Weapons of Peace in 1970. They remained intact for eight years, and then Henderson relocated. He worked for a while as a comedian, and even served as the opening act for Richard Pryor in San Francisco. Henderson roomed for a while with Al McKay of Earth, Wind And Fire. They formed the group Prophecy with Bill Wolfer. Motown offered him a solo deal, but he made little impact or impression with his one session in 1983. Henderson also wrote "Call Me," which was included on Wolfer's '82 LP Wolf.
