LaShun Pace, one of the Anointed Pace Sisters who now has a solo career, was recently released from an Atlanta medical center after undergoing a heart procedure in which a small device was placed under her skin to help control heart rhythms, according to a news release from her publicist.
The news release did not specifiy Pace's heart problem or when she had the procedure.
"Despite rumors and hearsay, Pace is doing well and has been cleared by her physician to resume concert dates,'' the news release stated. "Pace was released from the hospital a week after her surgery and was instructed by her medical team to cease all travel until she was able to fully recuperate."
"She is scheduled to minister in song in New York City, Washington, D.C., Memphis and Philadelphia in the coming weeks,'' the release stated.
"I'm doing very well and I look forward to ministering to God's people in song again," Pace said from her Atlanta home. "I just really want to thank my medical staff, Atlanta Heart Association and many, many thanks to all my well-wishers and supporters."
With proper nutrition and exercise, Pace's health outlook is positive. "The small device in her chest uses electrical pulses to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate,'' the news release stated.
Pace began her gospel career in the mid-'70s with her siblings in the Anointed Pace Sisters. Since going solo in 1991, she's recorded seven albums, including "He Lives," "Shekinah Glory," "Wealthy Place" and "Just Because God Said It."
She has garnered two Stellar Awards and is a recent author of an autobiography, "For My God But For His Glory."
