I love gospel music, if you ask me my favorite, there are many, there is one person that stands out in my mind today that would be the minister, gospel singer, pianist, composer, arranger, choir director and recording artist.

He was accompanist for the Caravans. That group was a top female group with Shirley Caesar, Dorothy Norwood, Inez Andrews, C. George, and Albertina Walker.

He later formed the James Cleveland Singers and the Southern California Community Choir.  .Rev Cleveland was the first black gospel artist to receive a star on Hollywood walk of Fame.
