Jo "Cool" Davis died, according to WWL TV. He was 63.

Davis was a gospel singer who recorded prolifically. He won numerous awards, including two Big Easy Music Awards. 

Davis was a familiar face in the Gospel Tent at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and he brought gospel music to many secular venues. To many New Orleanians, he was the face they met at the door of the club Tipitina's, where he worked and performed for many years. 

Davis is survived by his wife Evelyn, twin brother George and daughter Charlene.
