Vine Records’ recording artist, Calvin Hunt died Saturday December 26, 2009 in a Queens, NY hospital at the age of 52. The acclaimed Gospel singer was a member and soloist of the famed Christ Tabernacle Choir and Brooklyn Tabernacle Singers. His latest Vine Records’ release, Bridges, claimed 2 Dove Award nominations for Contemporary Gospel Recording and Contemporary Gospel Song, “Come On.”
Christ Tabernacle Choir Director Steven Carey commented, “Calvin Hunt’s ministry transcended his terrific musical talent…He loved Jesus Christ, he loved people, and as a result He loved to share the love of Christ with anyone he came in contact. The faith he had in the God that had delivered him from drug addiction could be powerfully felt when he would tell his story. His testimony gave people hope…everyone from the inner city to the suburbs was touched when he would speak and sing. He will be missed greatly by his local Christ Tabernacle family, the music industry, and the body of Christ.”
