Contemporary gospel vocalist and pastor Beverly Crawford made her performing debut at the age of three, singing at her father's church. A few years later, she joined her siblings in a group called the Camp Sisters. A battle with cancer drew her closer to her faith, and in 1989 she and husband Todd Crawford founded the Potter's House Ministries. After appearing on recordings including Bobby Jones Gospel's Bring It to Jesus and the Music City Mass Choir's We Need to Hear It from You, Crawford made her Warner solo debut with Jesus, Precious King (1995). Her second and third albums, Now That I'm Here (1998) and Beverly (2001), were more successful, with the latter a number four hit on Billboard's gospel chart. During the 2000s and early 2010s, she continued to release new albums every couple years. Thank You for All You've Done (2014), her most successful recording, topped the gospel chart and crossed into the Top 60 of the Billboard 200. Additionally, Crawford and her husband are co-pastors of the Gainesville Family Worship Center. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
