As many are celebrating the joyous Christmas season, Christian Contemporary vocalist, Nicole C. Mullen, is mourning the loss of her father.

Napoleon Coleman, Jr. died Wednesday, Dec.14, she confirmed on her official Facebook page. He was 80 years old.

“My dad, who was born on 11-08-36… went to be with Jesus at 11:08pm last night,” wrote the “Hey Girl” singer in a Thursday morning post, adding, “No doubt HE is rejoicing in the presence of the Lord…!”

Mullen, 49, did not disclose details surrounding the death of the man she called “one of my all-time favorite people.” The doting daughter spoke those exact words about the Pentecostal Deacon and gifted singer before the two performed a duet of the Christmas song “Chestnuts Roasting” in December 2012 in Arizona.
