Lamonte McLemore (born September 17, 1939) is an American vocalist. He was a founding member of The 5th Dimension, a popular vocal group of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

McLemore married Lisa Harvey and had a daughter named Ciara. In 2014, he wrote and published his autobiography with Robert-Allan Arno, From the Hobo Flats to The 5th Dimension - A Life Fulfilled in Baseball, Photography, and Music.[1][2]


McLemore was born in St. Louis, Missouri. He is a professional photographer for Playboy, Ebony, Jet, People, and Harper's Bazaar magazines.[3]


McLemore was the first African American athlete to try out for the St. Louis Cardinals. After he moved to Los Angeles, he was a minor league strong-arm pitcher with the Los Angeles Dodgers for a short time.[4]


After he graduated from high school in 1952, McLemore enlisted in the United States Navy, and worked as an aerial photographer. He was a co-founder of Helmut Graphics, and worked there as a photographer beginning in 1958. McLemore was the first African American photographer hired by Harper's Bazaar magazine and was the photographer for Stevie Wonder's first album cover. McLemore has been a photographer for Jet and Ebony magazines for over forty years. It was because of his photo shoot at the Miss Black Beauty Pageant in the mid-1960s that he met Marilyn McCoo and Florence LaRue which ultimately led to The 5th Dimension being created.[4]
