Our office was informed today of the homegoing of gospel great Ethel Holloway. She passed at the Alden Manner Nursing Home on Austin, in Chicago.
Ethel is known/loved all over the world through her travels with the Jessy Dixon Singers, the Thompson Community Singers, the Ethel Holloway Singers, and foremost by representing herself as a phenomenal solo artist.

We extend our heartfelt love and prayers to Ethel’s five children, grandchildren and a world of gospel music fans.
