Multiple media outlets are reporting that David “Pop” Winans has died at the age of 74. The gospel legend passed away in a hospice in Nashville where he had been staying after suffering a stroke and heart attack last year.

I have been listening to gospel all my life and I can’t name a single Pop Winans song. Nevertheless, I completely understand the contribution he made to the gospel music industry. His role as the matriarch of the first family of gospel (The Winans) can not be undervalued. We can never underestimate the impact that a parent has on our lives. Without Pop, the Winans musical empire wouldn’t exist.

I would like to offer my condolences to the entire Winans family.
