CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The Prophets played without their lead singer Billy Scott Sunday.

The North Carolina Rhythm and Blues and beach singer died from cancer two weeks ago.

A Who's Who of the beach music crowd joined family and friends at a South Charlotte hotel to celebrate Scott's life.

One of his long-time friends is North Carolina Governor Elect, Pat McCrory.

The governor says he and Scott were neighbors when they were young.

Scott began recording with the Prophets in 1966.

Their first gold record was "I Got the Fever".

Billy Scott was 70 years old.
