Producer, singer and record executive dies in March

TOP GOSPEL producer, performer and record executive Frank Williams died in March. He was national director of Malaco Records' gospel division and was a key performer in two of the label's popular acts, the Jackson Southernaires and the Mississippi Mass Choir, which was founded in 1989 and which has been hailed by many as "one of the greatest recording choirs in gospel music history". Williams died of acute cardio respiratory arrest. His sudden and premature death causes a great loss to the world of gospel. CR

Frank Williams and the Mississippi Choir still help me through my bad days. I always loved the Mississippi Choir since I was a child. The traditional gospel songs had meaning for those that struggle doing those days. Today those old traditional songs still have meaning to me. Your Grace and Mercy kept me Near the Cross when I Need Thee. Rest on Frank, your songs still touch me.

His songs and the Mississippi mass choir truley helped me as young child. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at age 14, I was very depressed and in si much self esteem was very low and I did not know how to express my feeling. I listened to the Mississippi mass choir, and I song many sings from 14 years old to now from the Mississippi choir and late frank. Everything I had in me I was able to express to Jesus through these songd. So tha k you for letting God use you cause it saved a little girl from harming herself. I found my voice and courage through these songs, th A Nk you.

His music is such a comfort to the body of Christ. Where every song is glorifying God. To Him be the glory for blessing us with such a dynamic man of God and the gift of voice. MAY he continue to " RIP "!

I love Frank D. Williams different recordings, I do have a
a lot of his recordings. This week I ran across some videos on Utube that he did with Rev. Cone. Frank looked
great, and his voice was better than ever. I have a problem, I can't find what is on Utube in a DVD, only in a CD. I enjoyed the music, and I enjoy seeing the artist , maybe Malaco can help in getting DVD version.
