shirley caesar

With numerous concerts a year, countless hours a week helping the poor in her Outreach Ministries, several Grammies and honorary awards, and over forty record albums, Shirley Caesar has embodied a whole army of gospel singers into one. The “Queen of Gospel” packs a lot of wallop in her small frame. Backed by a sixty-person choir, she is not a force to be reckoned with. Shirley Caesar was the first to introduce the gospel style of singing that involves spoken word and dramatic acting to the musical persona. She journeys all over the world, singing and preaching the Gospel. Shirley has barreled through fifty years of touring and preaching, starting at age ten, and she continues to change lives and save souls every time she performs.
