Gospel pianist Anthony Burger passed away on February 22 after he collapsed during a live performance.
The 44 year old was performing on a Gaither Homecoming cruise when he suddenly collapsed. Family Friend Tom Rowland told the Associated Press, "They have not done an autopsy yet, but they suspect it was a heart attack."
Early in his career he played for groups like the Celestials as well as the Kingsmen.
"Most recently, he'd been a guest artist and pianist for Gaither Homecoming concerts headlined by gospel superstar Bill Gaither"
This year his album A Tribute to Bill and Gloria Gaither was nominated for the Gospel Music Association's Dove Award for an instrumental album.
His wife LuAnn and three children are in our prayers.
