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

Brother Frank rest in peace. The life you lived is continuing to be a blessing even for some us in a distance land. Watching these videos and listerning to your voice makes me to desire more of our Lord Jesus.

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.

I listen to the Mississippi mass choir when I can. These people are anointed. Thank you Frank Williams, its been awhile since you've been gone,but truly not forgotten. I can't seem to find the album or people just don't want to download it. Thank you again for the Mississippi mass choir they're my favorite of all time.
