Gospel music meant a lot to Leslie Jordan. Although his relationship with his faith was sometimes complicated and strained, he found comfort in the old gospel tunes he sang growing up.
Jordan shared some of his favorite gospel songs on his 2021 album Company’s Comin‘. The album was a collaborative effort with some of his dearest friends in country music, including Tanya Tucker, Dolly Parton, and Chris and Morgane Stapleton.
For example, Jordan sang the beloved song “Where the Soul Never Dies” with Parton.
Jordan unexpectedly passed away on Monday (October 24) at the age of 67. After his death, people took to his social media pages to see what his last post was. They discovered that Jordan’s final post was a video of himself singing another treasured hymn.
Just one day before he died, Jordan shared a video that shows him singing “When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder” with songwriter and producer Danny Myrick. In the caption, Jordan shared he was working on an original song with Myrick too.
“Sunday Mornin’ Hymn Singin’ with @dannymyrick,” Jordan said. “Danny helped me with a new original song that should be comin’ out real soon. Love. Light. Leslie.”
