AP: " Gospel singer Dottie Rambo dies in tour bus wreck in Mo."

"Joyce "Dottie" Rambo, an influential gospel singer and songwriter, died early Sunday when her tour bus ran off the highway and struck an embankment.


Rambo was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame last year and the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame in 2006.

Rambo has had more than 2,500 published songs, including gospel classics such as "He Looked Beyond My Fault and Saw My Need" and the 1982 Gospel Music Association Song of the Year, "We Shall Behold Him.""

- see the whole AP article here. Very sad.

- Dottie Rambo's website

I doubt seriously that many readers of the faithmaps blog listened to Dottie Rambo. But she was a huge figure in what's termed "gospel music. "
