Jack Laws passes away
Jack Laws, longtime baritone for The Inspirations and current baritone for Smoky Mountain Reunion, passed away this afternoon. Smoky Mountain Reunion posted on Facebook: “Our dear brother, Jack Laws, has just passed from this life to GLORY!!! Please pray for his family and his quartet family, we will miss him so. He is in that wonderful place Where He Will Never Grow Old!!!!”
Laws toured with the Inspirations in three different stints, from 1964-1971, for about five years in the 1980s, and on a part-time basis from 1999 through 2008.
Here is a video of Laws singing “Too Much to Gain To Lose” with Smoky Mountain Reunion; it’s especially poignant today:
