"Howard Carroll was a legendary gospel musician, contributing to the success of the Grammy winning quartet The Dixie Hummingbirds during their peak period starting after World War II. The group earned four Grammy nominations throughout their expansive career, and were awarded the Best Soul Gospel Performance Grammy for their rendition of Paul Simon's 'Loves Me Like a Rock' at the 16th Annual Grammy Awards. A revered guitarist, Carroll, and the Hummingbirds, exerted a major influence on gospel music as well as on pop and R&B artists such as Jackie Wilson and The Temptations. He will be dearly missed, and our thoughts go out to his family, friends, and collaborators during this difficult time."
