The Gospel Music Industry is feeling a huge loss following the passing of Kenny Taylor “Mr. Gospel”. Based out of Washington, D.C., Kenny was a man who loved God. He was also the one person in the industry that you could count on to be everywhere, for everybody any day of the week. His roots in the music industry ran deep. From Images of Unity, Air Records, Music Advocate for Gospel Music Heritage Month to being a Record Executive, Manager for Eric Waddell & The Abundant Life Singers, Consultant to many behind the scenes and the connection for many to countless opportunities and opened doors where it was often impossible for most, Kenny was the man.
Kenny was the CEO of Teemade Productions, Inc., where he provided full services in Promotions, Retail & Street promotions. He focused on brand development. He also worked as a tour manager, booking manager, event promoter, in radio promotions and as a respected musician in his church.
Under his company’s name he also put together some of the largest Monday night musicals and Gospel concerts for the Gospel Music Workshop of America – Gospel Announcers Guild (GMWA –GAG). The beneficiaries of these concerts were not only those who attended the annual event but the Independent artists as well as national talent.
Simply…Kenny Taylor was loved by many from the music industry, his church family, his inner circle, family and friends and those who even knew him from afar.
May we keep the family of Kenny Taylor and those close to him in prayer. He was truly one of the good guys and will be greatly missed!
