Archie Watkins to launch solo career
Archie Watkins has informed the Singing News that his retirement from his 45-year career with the Inspirations is official. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.] He will be launching a solo career, and has launched a solo website, www.archiewatkins.com.
I would certainly go to hear him in a solo concert, if for no other reason out of curiosity.
Forty-five years of faithful service carrying the Gospel through music is worth honoring! Kudos to Mr. Watkins as he moves into semi-retirement.
