Kirby Powell of gospel quartet, The Powell Tradition, has passed

GMF is sad to report that Kirby Powell, lead singer of Robersonville, NC quartet gospel group The Powell Tradition, passed Wednesday.  He was 29 years old.
The Powell Tradition is a family group consisting of brothers and cousins who were exposed to music as toddlers and who have been singing together as The Powell Tradition for more than 24 years. The group’s recordings include It’s Been Too Long and Personal Diary.

At the time of Powell’s passing, the group was prepping for an appearance on Bobby Jones Gospel next month as well as a live CD/DVD recording this fall.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Kirby’s wife and his entire family, friends, and The Powell Tradition.

  1. Anonymous (who commented on 7/27), he and his group, The Powell Tradition sang the day before his hospitalization. I am unsure what happened, but it's a blessing to know that he carried out his ministry til the end. That must be very comforting to his family and friends.

    1. He had kindof a heart attack cuz he couldnt breath and he died 5 times but then he finally died
