September 09, 2018 "To the entire Stubbs Family, please accept my sincere condolences of the loss of your beloved, Husband, Father, Brother, relative, and Friend, Levi Stubbs. My Father often says that Death is a friend of to one, and although I cannot quote the scripture accurately it reads as follows: "One Day Death will be swallowed up forever, and the Lord will wipe away all of our tears". What a glorious day that will be. Many of us who remain will often recall the beauty of his voice, so let us be thankful that God, and his Son Jesus Christ loaned him to us during our own lifetime's to help us make it on those days when he cheered our hearts. Frank Charles Dodson." - Frank Charles Dodson (Detroit, MI)
September 09, 2018 "Meeting Levi Stubbs at a party at Mary Wilson's house in 1972 is one of my most treasured memories. I was introduced to Levi, and the other Tops by Singer Adam Wade during the Fisher Theatre run of 'Hallelujah Baby'. I was blessed to speak with Levi at length on this occasion, and we spoke of many things, I told him of my aspiration to become a Singer, and his encouragement has lasted until this day, and specifically was a guiding light for me during my Middle Eastern tour with 'The Luciano Migliorini Dance Company'. His voice was a major influence to many, and as I listen to it these days, I continue to marvel at his vocal ingenuity. Frank Charles Dodson. " - Frank Charles Dodson (Detroit, MI)
August 19, 2018 "One of the greatest voices of my life, a true R&B legend. I grew up on Motown and soul music and Levi was truly, unbelievably talented. I still get goosebumps every single time I hear that clear, clarion baritone. God has that great voice now that he created in 1936 and I bet he asks to hear it regularly and often. RIP sir, and thank you from the bottom of my heart. " - dave o (buffalo, NY)
