Reports have confirmed that Bishop Fritz Cobbs, father of gospel sensation Tasha Cobbs did indeed pass away early Sunday morning.

Cobbs' riveting performance at the Stellar Awards was one of the highlights of the weekend.

Your prayers are solicited on behalf of the Cobbs', their extended family and the church family at the Jesup New Life Ministries of Jesup,Georgia. Details have not yet fully been released and in the mean time, requests for privacy and prayers have been solicited instead.

Daddy's girl

On "I Trust You" from her "Grace" album, her father introduced her:

...and I want to introduce her tonight, none other than my baby, my daughter! I ask everybody to stand as TASHA comes in. TASHAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

This loving introduction is unforgettable and simply listening to the song, the dynamic of their relationship comes through in such a tangible way. Losing her father after such a monumental weekend is without a doubt tragic. Please continue to pray for Tasha and her family as they get through this with the help of the Lord.

As further details are released, they will be provided in this column. Thank you!
