NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WDRB) -- A popular New Albany restaurant will soon close.

The owner of Gospel Bird made the announcement on the business's Facebook page Wednesday. He said his mother was just diagnosed with a severe illness, so he's decided to close the restaurant on Main Street to spend more time with family.

He went on to thank everyone who's supported Gospel Bird over the past three years.

No closing date has been set yet.
