Anne’ DuBose informed JGM of the passing of her father, Jonathan “Papa Joe” DuBose Sr. He transitioned today at age 82.
Papa Joe DuBose was a member of the Sensational Starlights gospel quartet of Bridgeport, Connecticut, and a leader in the local gospel music community.
Anne’ and her family developed a book on the life of Papa Joe after she and her brothers Kenneth and Jonathan Jr. compiled a historical program for their father’s 70th birthday celebration. Many know Jonathan DuBose Jr. for his years of guitar work for many gospel artists.
