I couldn't believe it when I read this. Anthony Burger, one of the best gospel musicians of our time, died suddenly while on a Gaither Homecoming Cruise. He was in the middle of a performance when he collapsed. He was only 44 years old. I saw this wonderful pianist on many occasions while he was performing with the Kingsmen Quartet. I've never heard better. Especially considering the obstacles he had to overcome. When he was three years old, his hands were terribly burned when he fell on a floor furnace. He overcame the burns and subsequent scarring and went on to win the Singing News Gospel Music Awards so many times they named one of the awards after him! He has spent the last several years touring with Bill and Gloria Gaither. He will truly be missed.
