Yahoo LAUNCHCAST Song Of The Day-Beverly Crawford
Song:For The Rest Of My Life
Album:Family & Friends:Live
Gospel singer Beverly Crawford has been performing since age three. She was born Beverly Camp in Gainesville, FL and grew up in Dallas. Her pastor father Walter Camp started a group with Beverly and her sisters and they toured for several years as The Camp Sisters. Beverly and husband Todd Crawford founded The Potter's House Ministries in 1989. Of course the ministry became closely associated with the popular pastor TD Jakes. He is a pastor but he is also interested in film and music production. Beverly recorded a couple of CDs for Warner Alliance in the mid 90s. But after Warner Bros. Records closed the label, TD Jakes started his own label called Dexterity Records and Beverly now records there. 2003's Family & Friends:Live has a lot of special guests including her family. Like a lot of old school gospel singers, she prefers to record live. Derrick Lee is the producer and he is probably best known as the musical director for BET's Bobby Jones Gospel. Dexterity has just signed a new distribution deal with Rhino so I expect to hear more from Beverly Crawford in the near future. Here's Beverly Crawford with O'Landa Draper & The Associates performing Nothing Shall Separate Me.
