Slim & The Supreme Angels "Stay Under The Blood", Live In Baton Rouge, LA.

We called him SLIM. To many he was a great singer, preacher, songwriter, and musician but, we called him Slim. To his family he was husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, or cousin but, we called him Slim. On Sunday, February 25, 2007, Slim entered eternal rest.

This towering individual could never impress anyone with his weight; after all he was Slim. He was, however, a force in the gospel music industry that could not be ignored. This gentle person was unique. He had a style (musically) that was one of a kind. He did not try to sound like someone else and no one could sound like Slim. He was also a showman. Do you remember the cape?

He would pen songs that made you think. He would sing them with such sincerity that you knew he was serious about his music ministry and desired to show someone the way to Christ. In the early days of his musical career, he played guitar for The Supreme Angels. He eventually assumed the lead singer role and the group's name was changed to Slim and The Supreme Angels and as is often said "the rest is history."

Slim had a way of making you laugh about yourself, about your situation, and about life in general, while at the same time conveying a powerful life lesson. What other group or singer could have given us "Don't Trust A Snake" other than Slim. What about "Death and The Beautiful Lady or "People Don't Do?" Can you imagine any other group or singer singing these songs? Of course not. Others may try, but they will never measure up to the performance of these songs, and so many more, by Slim and The Supreme Angels.

Slim will be forever remembered by those that just like good gospel music. All of the songs he recorded were memorable in their own right, but there are some that just standout. Such as Shame on You, By and By, What A Friend We Have In Jesus, Stay Under The Blood, Tribute, Blind Man, and What's To Matter Now? Also included in that list would be Nobody But You Lord, People Don't Do, Well Done, and Have You Heard The News?

Generations yet unborn, when introduced to gospel music (particularly traditional gospel music), will ask the question "who was Slim"? We hope that they are told that he was a great singer and minister, and that he was truly a child of God that did not mind showing you how to praise and worship God. Then we hope that they are told to find a DVD (or whatever the video format maybe at that time) of Slim and The Supreme Angels and just maybe they will experience what so many of us have in Slim's concerts -- the performance by a legend who represented the best of gospel quartet music. And that is why we called (and will continue to call) him Slim.
