Joseph Middleton of The Golden Era Gospel Blog informed GMF of the passing of Edna Tatum.

Edna was a longtime commentator and broadcaster who was also recognized for her narrative collaborations with Rev. James Cleveland, Albertina Walker, and others.

I was introduced to Edna by Bro. Steve Harris in 2012, and I fondly remember her warmth and her encouraging words to me as a newcomer to the GMWA convention.

GMF extends sympathy to her family, friends, and industry colleagues.

  1. I was sorry to hear of Edna's passing. For many years she has been part of what I call my 'Perfect Sunday Morning':
    fresh coffee, the Sunday papers, on the patio with Gospel Classics cranked up loud until the caffeine kicks in.
    She will be missed. Please forward my appreciation for all the joy she shared over the years.
