Beverly Crawford

Beverly Crawford is an African American gospel vocalist who is best known for singing with the New Life Singers on Bobby Jones Gospel on the Black Entertainment Television (BET) and for having well-known songs such as “Praise Jehovah”, “Run to the Water”, “He’s Done Enough”, and most recently “It’s About Time For A Miracle”. Born on August 31, 1963 in Gainesville, Florida, she is one of seven children born to the late Bishop Walter Camps and his wife. She began singing at the age of three and joined her sisters as part of the Camp Sisters.

In the late 1980s, her husband, Todd Crawford, recorded a homemade video of her and her sisters singing and submitted copies to several gospel companies, with Bobby Jones Gospel the only one responding. Being impressed with the sisters, Bobby Jones invited them to sing on his show, and after about a couple of visits, he invited Beverly to join his group, New Life.

Beverly stayed on the show for six years, where she was a favorite every week. She began her solo career in 1995 with the release of Jesus, Precious King on Warner Alliance Records (now defunct), followed three years later with Now That I’m Here, which includes the hit title song and “Just As Soon (I’ll Be Shouting)”. The latter album was nominated for a Grammy in 1999. Main Source:  Wikipedia, The Free Library
