Not sure what to say?

The gospel world has lost a legend. I grew up on the Five Blind Boys' music and Clarence Fountain was a joy to see and hear. Thank you Lord for blessings.

I recall to mind how Gospel artist, Fred Hammond, sampled Clarence Fountain's voice from the Five Blind Boys of Alabama's song of the 1960's, "Our Revival Time" into his 1991 song, "I Came To Jesus As I Was." It was my first time hearing a Gospel tune sampled into another Gospel song. I still like both songs to this day. Thank God for the gift of Clarence and his anointed voice, and for giving us hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

one of the best now rest in jesus name . amen

"And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away and be at rest."
