Beloved, award-winning gospel singer LaShun Pace has passed away, her management team confirmed. She was 60 years old.
Pace got her start performing with Grammy-nominated gospel group The Anointed Pace Sisters along with her sisters Duranice, Phyllis, June, Melonda, Dejuaii, Leslie, Latrice, and Lydia. Duranice Pace passed away in January 2021 and their mother Bettie Ann Pace in 2020.
Larry Reid Live was the first to break the news of LaShun’s passing.

The Pace Sisters recently lost their sister songbird Duranice Pace and Mom Pastor Betty Pace. Pray for them and all of us who will mourn this loss.”
