The number of passings in the gospel community since August 1, 2023, has been significant and heartbreaking. Yet another, Dewitt Johnson, a Nashvillian and co-organizer of the B. C. & M. Mass Choir and founder of the Johnson Ensemble, has gone on to earn his wings.

I cannot write anything more eloquent than what Tim Dillinger has already done, so I direct you to his post, “Remembering Dewitt Johnson,” on God’s Music Is My Life.

Homegoing details are included in the article. Please keep Bro. Johnson’s family, friends, and many fans in your prayers.
