Honoring a Gospel Legend

Honoring a Gospel Legend

 

Southern Gospel Music legend Meurice LeFevre, for whom the SoundLab in the MPCS Murray Arts Center is named, has passed away.

The name LeFevre is almost synonymous with Southern Gospel music. An innovator in Gospel and secular music recording, Meurice founded Sing Record Company in 1959 – the first state-of-the-art recording studio in Atlanta. He studied with Nashville’s finest engineers, replicating RCA’s Nashville studio, and worked with engineers to create portable sound consoles with echo, equalization, and limiters along with Nuemann microphones to deliver optimum sound for television stations such as Ted Turner’s Superstation WTBS.

Meurice was involved in the inception of The Gospel Music Association, where he served four terms on the Board of Directors. He was the first Chairman of the Board of the GMA Hall of Fame, co-founded the Atlanta Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, and successfully secured a Grammy category exclusively for Southern Gospel Music.

Meurice was father to Lisa (LeFevre) Mulkey and Ron Mulkey (for whom the Mulkey Building on campus is named), and grandparent to alumni Taylor Mulkey Kinsey ’09, Madeline Mulkey ’12, Ian Williams ‘15, and Nathan Williams ‘15.
