Heritage Singers Co-founder Max Mace Passes Away
The family of Heritage Singers co-founder Max Mace (born 1937), announced on Wednesday, November 4, that he had passed to his rest earlier that day.
The Adventist musician and his wife, Lucy Mace, founded Heritage Singers in 1971. Extremely popular with Adventist audiences, the gospel group has performed for almost 50 years, putting on over 7,000 concerts in over 75 countries. It has produced 200 television programs, and recorded over 100 albums.
The November 4 announcement on the Heritage Singers Facebook page read as follows:
This morning, at 10:35, our beloved husband, father and grandpa was set free from his earthly suffering as he entered into the arms of Jesus, his ultimate rest.
While our hearts feel the weight of sorrow, we are very grateful that he no longer feels any pain or sadness.
While thousands upon thousands of us will no doubt grieve his loss, let us also celebrate the enormous legacy this humble, kind and loving man has left behind.
Because he dared to dream with God and step out in courageous faith, countless lives have been forever changed over the past five decades, throughout the entire globe.
We are so proud to have called him Husband, Father and Grandpa. His unconditional and generous love for us will forever be in our hearts. He has truly become our Heritage.
