Legendary gospel singer, Lashun Pace has passed away at the age of 60.
Pace, who was a key member of the gospel vocal group “The Anointed Pace Sisters” died Monday, March 21.
The gospel singer was on dialysis for five years waiting for a kidney and died of organ failure Monday morning, her sister, Lydia Pace told 11Alive’s, Shiba Russell.
She was born in Atlanta’s Poole Creek community and she eventually rose to fame performing with her sisters.
“The Anointed Pace Sisters,” which was made up of nine sisters, first shared their family melody in church and local talent shows before rising to gospel stardom.
Pace also carved out her own career and released solo albums. A snippet of LaShun’s 1996 hit ‘Act Like You Know’ recently became a TikTok trend, which Lydia said LaShun was so excited about, encouraging her to start working on another album.
Pace was inducted into the Christian Music Hall of Fame in 2007.
