  10. Rev. Paul Hobson Sadler Says:

    David Peaston was a phenomenal artist and a great friend who I met in Chicago in the 80’s when he came to sing at our church. Needless to say the church was in spiritual pandemonium when he finished. We were friends from then on. Much love to his wife Marilyn and their sons and his entire family. Blessings, Paul
