Robert Lee "Sugar" Hightower Robert Lee “Sugar” Hightower of Slim and the Supreme Angels a/k/a The Supreme Angels died on Tuesday, August 24, 2010, in Goldsboro, NC.

Many will remember Sugar as the musical genius behind so many of the recordings from The Supreme Angels. And, for the quartet gospel enthusiast, there will also be fond memories of Sugar as a member of The legendary Hightower Brothers.

The gospel music community has lost a giant of the industry. Mr. Hightower possessed extraordinary musical talent. Along with being an exceptional guitarist, he was a songwriter and arranger.

We extend our condolences to the Hightower Family and to the members of The Supreme Angels.
