    Kind of hard for Jonathan to continue on as Wilburn and Wilburn if he is the only Wilburn. Might have to change the name to Jonathan Wilburn Ministries, or something. :-) On a side note, I’m not surprised by this announcement, since I’ve been seeing recent videos of Wilburn and Wilburn popping up online and it was only Jonathan singing.
