RIP Jessy Dixon

The news was broken this afternoon by several media sources that Jessy Dixon had passed away.  Originally discovered by rock legend Paul Simon, Dixon has been a legend in gospel music and was immensely popular in recent years as a member of the Gaither Homecoming family.  Jessy was 73 years old.  I had the opportunity to meet Jessy when I volunteered at a Gaither concert years ago, and he came across as very personable and gracious.  Condolences and prayers to his family and friends.
