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

It's such a lost that Frank Williams is no longer here. I feel that he left a legacy behind for Gospel Music, and The Choir to continue on as they do. I always love to hear him sing "Near The Cross". I watch the video on you tube. God Bless you, Frank...may your Soul Rest in Peace.

He was the greatest worshiper that ever lived, I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to enjoy his music. I grew up listening to the Mississippi mass choir, I still do.
