Anniversary of Brother Albert "The Country Boy" Lewis celebrated in Bolton
On a recent Sunday, the Jimmie Lewis Pavilion in Bolton was filled with the sounds of Gospel music and celebration during the 26th anniversary celebration of Brother Albert "The Country Boy" Lewis. Performers included John T. Lewis and the new Gospel Keystones, Bishop Isaac Lindsey, Sr., The Utica Southernnaires, Greg Flowers, and others.
The 67-year old host, emcee, radio personality and promoter of gospel music received many accolades and a certificate of appreciation for his contributions throughout the State over the past twenty-six years.
The passing of his wife Fannie David Lewis in January 2020, after forty-one years of marriage, was a major blow.
“I have been lost without her,” Lewis said. “My children, grandchildren and many friends have kept me going. And as we are able to resume some of our in-person church services and gospel performances, that helps, too. I would love to provide my services for the gospel performers, and they may reach me at 601.665.2069.”
Lewis’s radio shows can be heard on Monday nights from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. on radio station WMPR 90.1.
