Tony Ulysses Thompson was an American R&B/soul singer and the lead vocalist of the R&B group Hi-Five.
The quintet's self-titled debut album went multi-platinum and created several hits, including "I Like the Way (The Kissing Game)", "I Can't Wait Another Minute", and "Just Another Girlfriend". In 1992, the group released their second album Keep It Goin' On, with "She's Playing Hard to Get" and "Quality Time". Their third album Faithful appeared in 1993.
Thompson's solo debut, Sexsational, was released on Giant Records in 1995. Thompson formed his own record label, N'Depth, and re-incarnated Hi-Five with four new members.
On June 1, 2007, Thompson's body was discovered at around 10 p.m. Friday outside of an apartment complex in his native Waco, Texas. A medical examiner determined that Thompson, 31, died from “toxic effects of chlorodifluoromethane,” or accidentally inhaling a toxic amount of Freon.
