Kim_Burrell_Pastor_Angel_SmithThe Gospel and Christian industries were hit hard with death’s sting over the weekend. The sad news begin with the loss of TBN co-founder Paul Crouch and didn’t let up.

Kim Burrell’s mother Helen Graham Spears lost her battle with Cancer, and Detroit’s beloved Pastor Dr. Angel Smith died peacefully.

Kim’s Mother Helen Graham Spears, succumb to an aggressive battle with cancer after a recent September diagnosis.

Mother Helen celebrated her 70th Birthday Sunday November 24th and transitioned one week later Sunday December 1 at 3:35am

As she transitioned, her Children and Grand Children were with her to love her on her journey. She leaves to mourn four children, Karen Jordan, Kevin Jordan, Kim Burrell and Kathryn Burrell along with 10 Grandchildren.

This great woman of God was an Evangelist. She is known as being an amazing teacher, an author, preacher and encourager.
