Gospel Great Timothy Wright Dies

 width=The Grammy-nominated singer and composer Rev. Timothy Wright has died at age 61. Music agent Will Bogle says Wright died yesterday at a Veterans Hospital. He was pastor at Grace Tabernacle Christian Center Church of God in Christ in Brooklyn. Wright released more than a dozen recordings. His “Come Thou Almighty King,” with the New York Fellowship Mass Choir, made the Billboard Top 20 charts for albums and was nominated in 1994 for a Grammy for best traditional soul album. Wright was critically injured and his wife and their 14-year-old grand son killed July 4 when their car was struck by a wrong-way driver in Pennsylvania. Wright had been returning home from a Detroit concert. 2
