Remembering James Blackwood

By Ken Horn | February 4, 2013

Yesterday marked 11 years since we lost, and the heavenly choir gained, Mr. Gospel Music, James Blackwood Sr. I was privileged to know him the last few years of his life. James Jr., Jimmy, has been a friend since he first sang for the church I pastored in Davis, California, in the 1980s. Pictured: a vintage Blackwood Brothers Quartet album and a shot I took of father and son in Tennessee. Also provided, links to a tribute I wrote when James passed, and a longer cover feature written during his lifetime.
