Funeral services were recently held in Philadelphia for William Bright, longtime member of the Dixie Hummingbirds.  Bright died earlier this month (Feb. 4), on his way to a radio interview about the group. 

The quartet veteran was born in Greene County, NC and grew up in Philadelphia.  His love of singing eventually married him to the Dixie Hummingbirds.
