The woman known as “The Queen Of Gospel,” ALBERTINA WALKER, has made her transition.
She began her singing career at the age of four and went on to become one of gospel’s greats. ALBERTINA organized her own gospel singing group in 1951, when she was just 22. They were called THE CARAVANS.
ALBERTINA was credited with the discovery of many gospel stars including Pastor SHIRLEY CEAESAR, INEZ ANDREWS, DELORES WASHINGTON, DOROTHY NORWOOD and Rev. JAMES CLEVELAND. ALBERTINA WALKER was 81.
Funeral arrangements are pending. Our condolences go out to her family, friends and many fans.
