Sherman Hemsley has died. Hemsley was most famous as George Jefferson on the tv show, The Jeffersons and Deacon Ernest Frye in Amen. “Years after [The Jeffersons] ended, Hemsley frequently encountered fans who asked him to reenact George’s famous strut from the show’s opening credits. Hemsley said it was inspired by the Philly Slop, a dance he learned as a boy in Philadelphia.” Hemsley also had a singing career and performed on Soul Train.
