The following statement was posted on K-Maxx’s Instagram account:
“It is with profound sadness and a heavy heart that we share with you the news that Kenyan “K-Maxx” Hopkins suddenly and unexpectedly passed away on December 29, 2020. He was a brother, an amazing musician, and a cherished friend to all. Words escape us as we are still in shock and ask only that you respect his family and their privacy at this time.”
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of one of our own, Brother Emmit Powell.
“Emmit Powell, one of America’s leading gospel radio and television broadcasters, formed the Gospel Elites in 1977. Primarily he wanted to provide regular back-up for special guests on his television shows, and to create opportunities for new gospel talent, but the group’s unexpected success soon put them in the public eye. Today, they are considered to present the finest in blues-based inspirational gospel music.” – Bay Area Music
