"John Louis Robinson entered this world on December 30, 1967 and peacefully departed to a greater place at 1:55 a.m. on July 1, 1995. God blessed Louis with a special gift of singing which he so freely shared with others during his somewhat brief journey through this life. Louis attained his secondary school education at Oxon Hill High School in 1986, having completed Printing Vocational School at Gwyn Park before graduating. After graduation, he worked several part-time jobs as a security guard before securing full time employment in the Production Department at the Bureau of National Affairs, Inc. in Washington, D.C. (now known as Bloomberg BNA in Virginia). He was on long-term disability at the time of is death.
"Louis' love for music and his commission to carry forth ministry through song permeated his very existence. Prior to, and up through his illness, Louis spent most of his time singing and ministering in various capacities, whether as a soloist in church choirs, in a musical group on his job, or in gospel ensembles or quartets. He was truly an anointed singer and rendered his musical works with purpose and conviction. Some of Louis' musical associations and experiences include, the Ralph Coates singers; the St. Thomas More Catholic Church Choir, with whom Louis recorded a duet "God Made a Change" enjoyed throughout Maryland and the District of Columbia; sever Washington Performing Arts Society Kennedy Center performances with the Gentlemen of the Gospel Choir, the Washington Mass Male Chorus; performing with Sharon Pratt Kelly's Inaugural Prayer Breakfast choir; and Joyous Sound, an ensemble including several of his co-workers at the Bureau of National Affairs.
"Louis attended the Douglas Memorial United Methodist church in recent years where he was particularly active in the music ministry. Louis was a dedicated member of the Douglas Memorial Ensemble, singing songs of Zion which blessed the hearts of the pastor, ministers, parishioners, choir members and so many others as the Ensemble went forth in its musical ministry throughout the Washington metropolitan area, Baltimore and Virginia. Louis was also a loved member and significant component of the Perfect Peace gospel ensemble family, with whom he also ministered throughout the metropolitan area and Virginia. Louis was given a special gift by the Almighty Father, and he exercised that gift until his physical facilities no longer permitted. He exercised his musical gift with joy and thanksgiving, always giving God the Highest praise, Hallelujah!
