Keep Him & His Family In Your Prayers



"The members of Grace Tabernacle Christian Church in Brooklyn offered up prayers Sunday for their pastor, famed gospel singer Timothy Wright, who was critically injured in a crash Friday on a Pennsylvania highway. “We honor the Lord for his goodness and his kindness,” the Rev. Frank Williams told congregants during the service. “We say, in spite of everything: God is still good. He shall live. He has impacted too many people. He has paid some of our rents when he couldn’t even pay his own.” Wright’s wife and co-pastor, Betty Wright, 58, was pronounced dead at the scene, and their 14-year-old grandson, D.J. Wright, died at a Pennsylvania hospital Saturday night, The Associated Press reports. They were returning from a Church of God in Christ conference in Detroit. Authorities say that John Pick, 44, who was traveling the wrong direction on I-80 in Greene Township, was also killed. Timothy Wright, 61, has released more than a dozen gospel recordings. Timothy Wright and the N.Y. Fellowship Mass Choir were nominated in 1994 for a Grammy for best traditional soul gospel album for Come Thou Almighty King. His other offerings include such discs as “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,” released last year. The Wrights have five sons."
