Wade was popular in the early 1960s with vocal styling similar to that of Johnny Mathis. In 1961 three of Wade’s songs (“Take Good Care of Her”, “As If I Didn’t Know”, and “The Writing on the Wall”) made the Top Ten in Billboard’s Top 100.
Wade was the first African-American to host a television game show (Musical Chairs) in 1975. He starred in the production Guys and Dolls in 1978 and hosted the talk show Mid-Morning LA.
