Vestal Goodman 


Another Legend Goes Home






Vestal GoodmanWritten by: Sandi Duncan Clark


I remember Vestal Goodman. That magnificent voice became familiar to me in my teens, and all of us have enjoyed the talent and personality for more than fifty years. I remember those beautiful eyes and that magnetic smile. I remember the vivid colored, designer clothes and the jewelry. From the early years, I remember the long hair, piled high in a hugh nest of curls and from more recent years, the fashionable coiffured style. And all of us remember the trade mark white hankerchief waving from the stage.



More that anything I remember the songs and the testimony. And, I remember the times I was fortunate enough to interview this wonderful lady; this Queen of Gospel Music.



Originally from the Albertville, Alabama-Sand Mountain, Alabama area, Howard and Vestal Goodman began their ministry shortly after their marriage in November of 1949. Vestal, sister of noted tenor singer, "Cat" Freeman remembered with the Statesmen, met Howard during camp meeting services, when he was 25 and she, only 15. They eloped four years later, and as they say, "the rest is history." Fortunately for southern Gospel music, that history included their fifty odd years singing Gospel music.

Sandi Duncan ClarkSome people are just plain special!  Such is the case with Sandi Duncan-Clark.  I know that many of you are familiar with Sandi through her former reporting with the US Gospel News and now with us right here on the Southern Gospel Music Forum.  If you are familiar with her work, you know she is a great journalist!  For those of you that have had the opportunity to get to meet Sandi, you also know that she is a great person!  Sandi has contributed much to the southern Gospel music industry over the years and some of us decided that it was time we honored her for those contributions!


It all began with John Mills.  John is the moderator of all of the discussion lists that are associated with the Southern Gospel Music Forum.  John decided that we were going to make February, Sandi Duncan-Clark Month on the email lists!  This turned out to be a popular decision as list member after list member wrote about the way Sandi had touched their lives.

A Tribute To Roger Bennett



March 10, 1959 to March 17, 2007



Roger BennettI have been going about my business today with a heavy heart.  This morning I received a call that Roger Bennett had gone home to be with the Lord.  Many people in Southern Gospel Music have passed on, but to this date, no has died that I knew as well as I knew Roger Bennett.  Now, I would not say that Roger and I were close friends.  However, I have many special memories of Roger Bennett and I want to share them with you.


At a time like this, our minds go to Roger's family.  His wife, Debbie and children, Chelsea and Jordan, were his pride and joy!  I never had a conversation with Roger when he wasn't talking about his family.  Personally, I never met any of them but my thoughts and prayers are with them right now.


Most people in Southern Gospel Music became familiar with Roger Bennett when he joined the Cathedrals in 1979.  It was shortly after that, I became familiar with this talented singer and songwriter.  I was not very old when I went to see and hear the Cathedrals in New York for the very first time but I will never forget Roger taking the time to talk to an awestruck kid that was a huge fan standing at their product table purchasing music.  As time went on, I saw Roger repeat that scene time and time again at product tables from everywhere from the NQC to a small churches.
