Emmit A. Powell, 1933-2018

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

Emmit has joined his ancestors. He sings with the angels now. He will be greatly missed.
