I had the priviledge of accompanying Gospel legend Andrae Crouch in Anaheim CA last year 2014. We will miss him and his anointed music.
Joe created the incredible opening for Diana Ross' "Love Hangover" which I arranged. RIP Joe.
Motown songwriter & producer. We became brothers in Music and in the Ministry for over 40yrs.
My wife & I both were friends with the Jackson family since the 70's
