PLEASANTON, CALIFORNIA. – Grammy award winner Edwin Hawkins, the gospel star best known for the hit “Oh Happy Day,” has died at age 74.
Hawkins died early Monday at his home in Pleasanton, California.
While the world is remembering Hawkins for his major contributions to the gospel music industry, at least one gospel artist is blaming Hawkins for pursuing him and turning him out as a homosexual.
The artist (who asked to remain anonymous) say Hawkins pursued him as a teen and introduced him to the dark world of homosexuality. He said Hawkins, who referred to him as “cutie pie” once made him perform oral sex on him in his car in a church parking lot.
The artist said the late Walter Hawkins was gay and knew his brother Edwin was having sex with young men in his church
The artist says he hopes both Edwin and his brother Walter are rotting in hell.
