Martin Cook (Pictured Above) of The Inspirations is hospitalized this afternoon as doctors perform procedures to install a pacemaker to assist the veteran Gospel music pianist. This comes after Mr. Cook fell after fainting yesterday during his daily walk, suffering minor injuries.
“After several tests,” says lead vocalist Matt Dibler, “doctors determined that Martin’s heart is strong but a pacemaker would be of benefit to him. He is in great spirits and he is doing very well.
“We are overwhelmed by the love and concern shown by the Gospel music family. We do appreciate your prayers for Martin, his family, and this group as we continue to spread the Gospel in song. We love you and we hope God richly blesses each of you.”
We will fill our dates this week with “Baby” Luke on the piano!
