RIP: David Gough, Founder of International Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Museum

By Bob Marovich

Darryl Lassiter informed JGM of the passing of David Gough at age 67.

A gospel music artist, film producer, and owner of DoRohn Records, Gough is probably best known for establishing the International Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Detroit, Michigan, in 1995.

I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Gough at the Gospel Music Workshop of America some years ago, and to speak with him several times by telephone.  He will most certainly be missed.

JGM extends its sympathies to the Gough Family.
