Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Southern Gospel music executive, Norman Holland, passed away today, March 10th, 2014 due to heart failure. After beginning his career at Benson Company in 1980, Holland served as Vice President and A&R of Daywind Records for 16 years, where he invested into countless artists and ministries within Southern Gospel music. Highlights of his career include developing and orchestrating the 100 Years of Southern Gospel Music celebration at NQC 2010, as well as receiving a lifetime achievement award from the SGMA in 2012.

"There may never be another who cares for artists like Norman Holland did," shares Ed Leonard, President of Daywind Records. "He was an innovative and dedicated employee. This is a heartbreaking loss."

"The wonderful memories of working and sharing life with Norman for 16 years are precious," remarks Dottie Leonard-Miller, Founder & CEO of Daywind Records. "I will cherish them as I cherished him."

Gerald Wolfe of Greater Vision adds, "Norman and I had a great working relationship for 27 years, but more importantly, he was one of my closest friends. His laughter was contagious, and his larger-than-life, magnetic personality always lit up any room he was in. Gospel Music has lost one of its most innovative and influential behind-the-scenes personalities, and I have lost a friend.  But not for long.  I know where he is."

Funeral arrangements are in progress and will be announced at a later time.
