In Memoriam – Walter Hawkins


One of the originators of contemporary Gospel Music has passed away from his battle with cancer. He is best known for his classic gospel hits like “Going Up Yonder”, “Thank You”, “Changed” and so many more. His ex-wife is legendary singer Tramaine Hawkins.

He started the Love Center Church in Oakland and was well known for his inclusion of anyone! As he said, we are all God’s children.
Thank you Walter for the music, the love and your ministry. You’re now with God. Be at peace!
