The month-long lull in reporting golden era gospel related news on this blog has ended, although the ending has come with sadness. Another legend has gone on home to Glory. Alberta Bradford, pianist for The Alex Bradford Singers and Stars of Faith, singer, stage actress, minister of music, and widow of gospel legend Professor Alex Bradford passed away on Friday, May 21, 2010. Homegoing services will be held on Friday, May 28, 2010 at Jones Tabernacle Baptist Church. 2100 W. Baltimore Ave., Baltimore, MD. Visitation/viewing will be from 9-11am, and the Homegoing service will begin at 11AM.
