Rev. Cleophus Robinson

Born March 18, 1932 in Canton, Mississippi, according to family legend Robinson suddenly sang his first gospel song, “Who Will Be Able to Stand?” at the age of three; from that point on, he sang regularly while working in the cotton fields, influenced in great measure by his mother Lillie, a gospel shouter in the tradition of Mahalia Jackson whose own vocal prowess was renowned throughout the region. As a teen, Robinson gave his first solo recitals at St. John’s Church of Canton; in 1948 he moved to Chicago, where he performed in a variety of area churches and appeared with the Roberta Martin Singers alongside Jackson herself.  Main Source:  Malacco Records.
