Willmer M. Broadnax December 28, [1] — June 1, [2]also known as "Wilbur", "Willie", and "Wilmer", was an American hard gospel quartet singer during the golden age of traditional black gospel. His most common nickname was "Little Axe," due to both his small stature and his brother William "Big Axe" Broadnax, who was a popular baritone. By he lived with his step-father Augustus Flowers, mother Gussie Frazier, younger brother William Broadnax, and younger step-sister Armatha Broadnax presumably carrying her step-father's surname because she was born before her parents' marriage in Houston.

In retirement, Broadnax continued to record new material occasionally with the Blind Boys into the s and s.
