Condolences flood the Facebook page of Doris Lumzy Bellamy. Longtime member of the quartet group, The Lumzy Sisters, has passed at the age of 61. Further information will be added as it becomes available.
Sibling and fellow group member Quita Lumzy passed in 2009.
According their bio on the Malaco website:
When asked what is most important to them in their lives as gospel
artists, Doris answered, “Well, I give all the glory to God. To me,
that’s the key, to help one lost person find their way. Our main focus
is how many souls are being saved. We are not about the glory—how well
we can sing or who sings best, or even awards, but it’s about Jesus and
It sounds as if she lived to please the Lord and to hear Him say, “Well done.”
GMF extends heartfelt sympathy to the Bellamy and Lumzy family and friends.
