Passing Of Atlanta's Own LaShun Pace

Pace Family

Atlanta’s own, LaShun Pace, legendary gospel singer-songwriter and member of The Anointed Pace Sisters, had died. LaShun was 60 years old. The Stellar Award winner had been on dialysis for five years and awaiting a new kidney, but passed away at an Atlanta hospital due to organ failure, Pace’s sister, Lydia, told 11 Alive.

The tragic news was confirmed by her management team and family on Monday (March 21) in a post across her social media accounts. “Official announcement from the Pace Family,” the statement reads. “Please keep @loveaarion (her daughter) and the entire family in prayer. Official details to follow.”

LaShun Pace was such a sweet, loving and very charming person and one of God’s greatest Sopranos. I will miss her, Atlanta will miss, her and the world will miss her. Thanks to the Pace Family for sharing her with us.

An Atlanta native who hails from a closely knit family of seven siblings, Evans learned early on, from his mother, the importance of the fear of God, the value of family, walking in honesty and integrity, obtaining a good education and pursuing one’s life’s dreams. Upon completing studies in the Atlanta Public Schools system, he entered Columbia School of Broadcasting where he majored in Mass Communication/Radio Broadcasting and obtained a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) license in 1985.
