Biography

Under the guidance of Professor Alex Bradford, the Abyssinian Baptist Gospel Choir grew from just another local outfit to the predominant Baptist gospel group in the area. Part of the group’s success was due to wide exposure via citywide radio. The larger part, however, was the result of Bradford’s gifts for writing and arranging in the classic call-and-response gospel style. The tracks on SHAKIN’ THE RAFTERS demonstrate a powerful and dramatic bifurcation between a gifted soloist and a 120-voice choir.

The Abyssinian Baptist Gospel Choir includes: Willie James McPhatter (vocals, piano); Margaret Simpson, Kathleen Lane, Calvin White, Reverend Means, Faytha Drayton, Bessie Lewis, Lester Ware, Clarence Drayton (vocals).
