Legendary Gospel Singer Inez Andrews Passes

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Gospelflava joins others across the world mourning the passing of legendary gospel icon Inez Andrews. Our prayers and thoughts are with her family and friends in Chicago and countless fans around the world.

Andrews was a giant in gospel, having sang with Albertina Walker and the Caravans before beginning a career with her own group.  Among her most popular songs are Mary, Don’t You Weep, Lord, Don’t Move the Mountain, He Won’t Deny Me, I’m Willing to Wait and others.

The Stellar Awards announced plans to honor Andrews with the Bobby Jones Legends Award in January.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
