Gospel discographer Bob Laughton reported to TBGB this morning that Mother Emily Bram-Bibby, National Evangelist and member of the National Advisory Board of the Women’s Department, Church of God in Christ, died yesterday, October 23, at the age of 91.
Bram-Bibby was a recording artist for Savoy Records in the 1950s. Her powerfully piercing vocals were reminiscent of fellow COGIC members Madame Ernestine Washington and Juanita “Arizona” Dranes. Bram-Bibby was a member of Redemption COGIC, Kansas City and was singing at churches and programs as late as last November. More details will be posted as they become available.
