The Journal of Gospel Music was sad to learn from Tim Dillinger-Curenton that Clyde Brown Moultry, a former member of Charles Fold’s Gospel Messengers and the Cleveland Singers, passed away on December 21, 2022, at the age of 77.

Clyde’s funeral service was held Saturday, January 7, 2023, at the Lincoln Heights Missionary Baptist Church, where at an early age he accepted Christ. His online obituary provides a biography of his life and career: Clyde Brown Moultry.

I am grateful to have had the chance to interview Clyde about his days as a Cleveland Singer for The King of Gospel: The Life and Music of James Cleveland (Malaco Music Group). He was a great soul who pursued a rewarding career as a vocalist. We will miss him dearly.
