Henry Fambrough (born 10 May 1938) is an original vocalist and current member of the R&B quintet The Spinners[1] (aka The Detroit Spinners). He is the last surviving original member of the Spinners.

During the group's heyday from the early to mid-1970s, Henry served as one of the group's lead singers (along with Philippe Wynne and Bobby Smith ) and his rich baritone provided lead vocals for the Spinners classic, "I Don't Want To Lose You," as well as co-lead vocals with Wynne on "Living A Little, Laughing A Little." He also dueted with Dionne Warwick on the Spinners' "Just As Long As We Have Love," from their album "Pick of the Litter," and also sang lead on the classic album cut, "If You Can't Be in Love," from the album "Happiness Is Being with the Spinners." Henry was noted for the handlebar mustache he wore at that time.
