The founder and president of Born Again Records, Barnett Williams, who gave the world Christian comedian Broderick E. Rice, James Grear and Company, Mary Floyd, 5 A.M. Praise, Tim “Bishop” Brown and Sonya Barry to name a few has died. It was announced Friday, November 11, 2011.
Barnett Williams, known for helping so many people, recently released the highly-inspired compilation entitled, “Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil,” celebrating artists from its inception to the present.
With over 30 recordings and fifteen Billboard chart toppers, Born Again Records has transpired as one of the leading independent gospel record labels, attracting artists from around the country seeking to launch their careers.
From the labels first release in 1995–Mary Floyd’s “God Is Able,” to the latest release from Stellar Award-nominated sister act 5 A.M. Praise, Williams was serious about his music.
A kind man who would give his shirt off his back, Barnett Williams will truly be missed.
**On Friday November 18 2011 from 10am PST to 12pm PST there will be a celebration of life at Sword of the Spirit, 17440 Bellflower Road, Bellflower, CA 90706.
