Gospel singer Jessy Dixon died September 26, 2011 at home in Chicago. The 73-year-old succumbed to an undisclosed illness, his sister Miriam Dixon has said.
“Dixon was born in San Antonio, Texas, and began singing there. In Chicago, he connected with gospel great James Cleveland and over the years performed with a number of gospel groups,” the Tribune reported.
Dixon had been “a cherished fixture on the Bill Gaither Gospel Hour television series and concert tours” for the past 16 years,” the obituary on his website said.
