Gospel Singer Timothy Wright Losses Wife



Grammy-nominated Rev. Wright was critically injured in a car crash that killed co-pastor Betty Wright and their 14-year-old grandson. Rev. Wright, 61 is in critical condition.

Along with the N.Y. Fellowship Mass Choir, Timothy Wright was nominated for a Grammy award for best traditional soul gospel album for 1994's "Come Thou Almighty King." He has released more than a dozen gospel recordings, including "Jesus, Jesus, Jesus," which came out last year. The Wrights, who have five sons, were returning from a Church of God in Christ conference in Detroit when their vehicle was struck Friday, said Leroy Johnson, a trustee at Grace Tabernacle. Their grandson D.J. Wright died the next night, according to a nursing supervisor at a hospital in Danville, Pa.
The crash also killed 44-year-old Lewisburg, Pa., resident John Pick, who drove the wrong way on eastbound Interstate 80 into the Wrights' vehicle, police said. The crash was being investigated.

--Please keep Rev. Wright in your prayers.
