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

I truly enjoyed listening to brother Frank Williams, there was such an anointing in his singing. I so appreciated how he allowed God to use him in the singing ministry. You could tell he really enjoyed singing; I too had the privilege of meeting him in a little church in Arkansas singing with the Jackson southernaires. I thought he was so handsome.

This man was awesome, one of the greatest gospel singers. For the last several weeks, "Your Grace and Mercy", has been my theme song, because of the hard trials that I have been experiencing. "Near the Cross", is next, and bless his heart, "My Mansion" I have to apologize to all of the other great gospel singers, but these songs are straight from God's Holy Word, and that is where I find my comfort and instruction in time of trouble. Please don't forget, "I'll See You In the Rapture". because that's where I will meet Bro. Frank. He is certainly a blessing to my life, then and now.

Brother Frank Williams blessed my life with his singing and his anointed voice, what a voice he had I still listen to his recordings and I miss him very much, and I know i will see him again in Gods kingdom and like he said in his song that there are mansions in Heaven and one of them belongs to me, I Love you brother Frank Williams keep on singing in Heaven.
