GMF is sad to learn that an historic music landmark is nearly reduced to rubble.
Malaco Records was destroyed yesterday by destructive storms. Malaco has been the home to numerous blues and gospel performers throughout its 44 year existence. Its gospel roster has included greats like The Jackson Southernaires, The Soul Stirrers, The Sensational Nightingales, The Williams Brothers, the Angelic Gospel Singers, and the Mississippi Mass Choir, among many others.
The owners, staff, and artists are in our thoughts and prayers.
