The minister of music at Polk Street COGIC sent a demo of the choir, with Hill on lead vocals, to Savoy Records in the early 60’s. The Savoy executives were so impressed that they signed the choir. Eventually Hill pursued a successful solo career and went on to record a string of hits in the mid-70’s including “Great Things,” and “Don’t Forget to Remember. ” In 1978 Record World magazine named Tessie Hill its “Top Female Gospel Artist.”
