Dan Peek went to Heaven on July 24 2011

Dan Peek died Sunday at age 60. Peek’s website confirms, without much detail but with a nice version of Lonely People.

Although America had a couple of early-’80s hits, its biggest years were from about 1970 to 1975, which is when Peek was with the group. According to the group’s AllMusic bio, Peek left in 1976 to pursue a contemporary Christian career.

Chris Christian produced Peek’s All Things Are Possible, which crossed over the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart (where it got as high as No. 6) and to the main pop-albums chart as well; and Doer of the Word.

    Saw Dan at the QE Theatre Here in Vancouver back in 1980 or so. Remember him in his Hawaiian shirt. Thanks for all the great music Dan. Now join the band.

    During the 70′s a huge number of well known pop/rock stars came to believe in Jesus, sadly the majority didn’t stay true and eventually returned to their old lifestyles, however I noticed from his website that Dan Peek was still believing and promoting faith in the Messiah. His album Electro Voice is memorable, Dan sang ‘A New Song’, stood ‘On Solid Ground’, declared ‘Not My Will’ but His be done, ministered to the ‘Lonely People’, listened to ‘His Masters Voice’, and said one day ‘I’ll Be Coming Home’, so now people ‘Open Up Your Heart’ and receive Jesus and you’ll be in a position to go in ‘The Rapture’.God bless you and thank you Dan for your contribution. Our loss, Heavens gain.
