Lifetime of Love

Most notable, however, is that Ashford & Simpson spent their personal and professional lives as a happy couple. In addition to theses hits and career milestones, they toured together, and in 1996, they opened a restaurant called The Sugar Bar. They were also a featured disc-jockey team on New York's KISS-FM radio station. At the 2012 BET Awards, Valerie made a moving tribute to her late husband, may he R.I.P.
