James Cleveland combined his talents as minister, singer, composer, and philanthropist, known as the King of Gospel music. By the time he was a teenager, Cleveland was singing with a neighborhood group, the Thorn Gospel Crusaders. And once the group began featuring Cleveland's compositions, the artist found himself piquing the interest of prominent gospel talents. A recording pairing Cleveland with the Angelic Choir of Nutley, New Jersey, the album, which held a spot on the gospel charts for more than fifteen years, has sold more than one million copies, an almost unheard of achievement for a gospel recording. During the 1960 Cleveland also formed the James Cleveland Singers, gradually built an international reputation, and became one of the best paid of the gospel music entertainers.
James Cleveland was born on this date in 1932. He was an African American minister, composer, and gospel vocalist. Born in Chicago, Cleveland’s life calling began at that city’s Pilgrim Baptist Church. They had two successful recordings, "The Solid Rock" and "Old Time Religion. Between 1956 and 1960, Cleveland wrote an average of three songs a week. During this time he left the Caravans, moved to Detroit as the musical director at the Bethel Baptist Church, and formed his own group, The Gospel Chimes. It was during this time that he collaborated with Aretha Franklin on the Grammy winning album "Amazing Grace" and received a record contract with Savoy Records. While there, Cleveland recorded over 100 albums and in 1963 released "Peace Be Still," which remained on the gospel music charts for 15 years.
