Popular Weekend Radio Personality Roy Gray Says Sandy Foster of "The Five Blind Boys Of Mississippi" Lost The Late Joe Watson's Sense Of Humor And So Much More

"Just about everyone with whom I've spoken concerning the recent passing of Joe Watson of 'The Five Blind of Mississippi' has talked about his great sense of humor, and Joe and lead singer Sandy were like brothers, so I was anxious to find out how the humor impacted Sandy," said Popular Weekend Radio Personality Roy Gray, clutching a doctor-prescribed inhaler, thanks to an apparent asthma attack.

"Yea, he had a real good sense of humor," recalls Sandy Foster, the famed lead singer for The Blind Boys.

"He always kept me laughing," continued Foster, emphasizing, "He was a very comical guy.

"And we're gonna really miss Joe...I loved Joe like he was my own brother."

Foster said Watson was "a good person" and was responsible for the group's background vocals.

"He was the head of the background," Foster explained, pointing out that Watson loved The Blind Boys hit song entitled "It Could Have Been Me" for its message and beautiful background sound.

"It could have been me, instead of Joe Watson, but I thank God for allowing me to stay here a little while longer to spread the (simply) good news of the Gospel," reasoned Foster.

Foster's children also sing.

"My Daughter, Dee Dee Foster sings background for Jessica Simpson...She's doing real well...And Little Sandy, my fourteen year old son, would like to also be out on the road some day," said proud papa Foster.

Gray, who is also an independent voice-over artist and cousin of "Mary Mary" Super Producer Warryn "Baby Dubb" Campbell, hosts the popular "Simply Gospel" music program, which airs live on theICN.Com (The International Christian Network) every Saturday Night at 6 PST.
