Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Gospel singer SHERRILL “SHAUN” NIELSEN, who passed away of lung cancer at age 68 on DECEMBER 10th.
SHERRILL was best known for singing with ELVIS PRESLEY on the GRAMMY-nominated song, “Softly As I Leave You,” and he also performed with many Gospel groups over the years, like the SINGING SPEER FAMILY and VOICE.
His funeral was held DECEMBER 16th in CULLMAN, AL.
