Grammy-nominated gospel singer Rev Timothy Wright dies aged 61

Grammy-nominated gospel singer and composer the Rev. Timothy Wright died on 23rd April at Bronx Veterans Hospital aged 61. The Brooklyn-born singer was critically injured in a three-vehicle car accident last summer that claimed the lives of his wife and grandson and put the singer on a respirator. Wright's 1994 album 'Come Thou Almighty King', recorded with the New York Fellowship Mass Choir, made the Billboard Top 20 for gospel albums and garnered a Grammy nomination for best traditional soul gospel album. He was nominated again in that category in 1999 for his 'Been There Done That' CD, recorded with the B/J Mass Choir featuring Myrna Summers. Wright's best known songs include "Jesus, Jesus, Jesus", "Who's On The Lord's Side" and "You Must Come In At The Door". CR
