Gospel singer, LaShun Pace, dies at the age 60
Iconic gospel singer, LaShun Pace has died at age of 60.
Pace, who was a key member of gospel vocal group The Anointed Pace Sisters, died Monday March 21.
Her sister, Lydia Pace, told 11Alive’s Shiba Russell;
“Pace was on dialysis for five years while she waited for a kidney and died of organ failure on Monday morning”
The Atlanta native was part of the renowned sibling gospel group The Anointed Pace Sisters. Born in Atlanta’s Poole Creek community, the Grammy-nominated group made up of nine sisters first shared their family melody in church and local talent shows before rising to gospel stardom.
Known for her hit songs “I Know I’ve Been Changed” and “Act Like You Know,” Pace also carved out her own career and released solo albums.
A snippet of LaShun’s 1996 hit ‘Act Like You Know’ recently became a TikTok trend, which Lydia said LaShun was so excited about, encouraging her to start working on another album.
Pace was inducted into the Christian Music Hall of Fame in 2007.
Her death is the third loss for the Atlanta family within two years. The oldest of the sisters, Duranice Pace, passed away last year.
LaShun is survived by seven of the nine Pace sisters and an adult daughter.
