Ernestine Rundless 1914-2007
Earlier this month, we lost Ernestine Rundless, the former leader of the celebrated gospel group The Meditations.
Today in Detroit, her family including her adopted daughter Laura Lee, her friends and former members of the Meditations including Della Reese, gathered to celebrate Ernestine's long life at the New Liberty Baptist Church.
If you go over to Sixties Detroit, you can see an obituary for Ernestine and photos of the celebration posted by my friend Sis Wendal.
I am currently gathering material for a celebration of Ernestine's contribution to gospel music which will be published on my Laura Lee blog.
If you want to hear and see the power of Ernestine's voice then drop in here!
Ernestine Rundless RIP.
