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 listed to the golden voices of the Mississippi Mass Choir all the time. The leader, Mr. Frank Williams has a voice like no other. I have several recordings of the Mississippi Mass Choir on many of my devices. Just learned today when a co-worker was listening to the famous "Near the Cross" recording with me that he died some years. Although his death was over 10 years ago, I send my condolences to all his love ones. RIP Mr. Williams. through your music and song, you will forever live in our HEARTS!

Mr. Williams voice was angelic. I love his songs and both my mother and my sister both who have passed on loved him too. Your Grace And Mercy is one of my favorites. This song has helped me through some of the most difficult times in my life. That voice was a true blessing from God. R. I.P.

Mr. Frank williams has the most beautiful heartfelt and wonderful voice l have ever heard. His words are so inspirational and annointed and up-lifting. It is hard to find good gospel music like Frank and the missippi mass choir these days. There will never be another gospel legend like Mr. Williams. I listen to his song, "Near The Cross", Constantly. It uplifts my spirit. I am also sad to learn that Mr. Frank Williams has passed on. He is the greatest gospel singer of all time. And he has surely gone away to be with our Lord.😊

Frank's voice was so anointed. His songs touch my soul to this very day. You could see how much he loved God when he sang. God blessed Frank with a gift to sing, and he used that gift,and shared his gift with many in singing praises to God.
