Tasha Cobbs' Father Passes Away Day After Her Stellar Award Win

Less than 24 hours after gospel sensation Tasha Cobbs received the Stellar Award for New Artist of the Year, her beloved father, Bishop Fritz Cobbs, passed away. Reports say it was early Sunday morning (Jan. 19). Bishop Cobbs was with his daughter at the Stellar Gospel Music Awards as she celebrated winning numerous awards for her smash album Grace. Cobbs' riveting performance at the Stellar Awards was one of the highlights of the weekend.

Daddy's girl

On "I Trust You" from her "Grace" album, her father introduced her:

...and I want to introduce her tonight, none other than my baby, my daughter! I ask everybody to stand as TASHA comes in. TASHAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

This loving introduction is unforgettable and simply listening to the song, the dynamic of their relationship comes through in such a tangible way. Losing her father after such a monumental weekend is without a doubt tragic. Please continue to pray for Tasha and her family as they get through this with the help of the Lord.
