Cecil Blackwood Passes Away

Gospel singer Cecil Blackwood died of cancer yesterday at
Baptist Memorial Hospital East. He was 66.
Cecil Blackwood was part of the legendary Blackwood Brothers, a group formed by his father. The group won nine Grammys and 20 Dove Awards for gospel music.
After the Blackwoods moved to Memphis in 1950, Cecil Blackwood led a group, the Songfellows, with whom Elvis Presley briefly performed. The Blackwoods gospel group was a favorite of Elvis Presley who regularly attended the Blackwoods’ all-night sings.
Blackwood was diagnosed with cancer last summer.
