For Those who Love Southern Gospel Music

From Gaither.com:

During the evening of Wednesday, February 22, while in concert on the Gaither Homecoming Cruise, Anthony Burger collapsed on-stage. He was taken backstage but was unable to be revived. The exact cause of death is yet to be confirmed, but is thought to have been a heart attack. Anthonoy was 44 years of age.

Please keep Anthony's family in your prayers during this unexpected and tragic loss.

Further details and arrangements will be provided as they become available.

Burger's web site, www.anthonyburger.com, isn't responding right now -- probably getting flooded. I've seen him in concert before, at Jubilate in Charlotte, NC -- he was an incredible musician. Pray for his family as they go through this very difficult time.
