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

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.

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.
