Singer, songwriter & recording artist Milton Ostrander, Known to most as BIG MO was traveling with his family, as they do every week on I-85 near Newnan, Georgia when they were hit by a driver that fell asleep on the highway.
The collision caught the family totally unaware as the trailer they were towing behind their coach that contains their extra product and P. A. was rear ended, totaling the trailer and damaging much of the equipment inside.
The family was not able to fulfill the concert dates they were headed for in South Carolina, but no one was seriously hurt. Even the driver and the passengers in the vehicle that hit
them at a high rate of speed walked away without serious injury.
Insurance should cover the replacement of the loss, but the loss of income is still a serious blow to a full time ministry.
“God is good, and for years we have relied on his faithfulness and see no reason to doubt him now.”
stated Big MO. “We are just so thankful that no one was killed or seriously hurt. Outside of a few
bruises and rattled nerves, everyone walked away because of the grace of God. For that we give
God all of the praise”
BIG MO is best known for his songs, THE FUNERAL OF JESUS, THE CALL, ANGELS ARE SILENT,
WHEN YOU BACK IS TOM THE WALL, among other charting songs.
