It is with joy and sadness that we announce the home-going of our beloved GOSPEL INDUSTRY AFICIONADO, Dr. Al “The Bishop” Hobbs.

(GMWA), under the leadership of Bishop Albert Jamison.

 

A recording artist, announcer, meeting planner, event coordinator, and successful entrepreneur, he was born June 4, 1943 in Decatur, Alabama.  He is the father of Alex Carrington Hobbs, Asha Gabrellia Hobbs, and Bridgett Hobbs.
