“What More Can He Do? (Already Done)” – LaNorris McFadden & P.R.O.O.F. ft. Beverly Crawford

“What More Can He Do? (Already Done)” LaNorris McFadden & P.R.O.O.F. ft. Pastor Beverly Crawford Independent (release date: September 18, 2020) By Robert M. Marovich Although nearly two years old, Elder LaNorris McFadden & P.R.O.O.F.’s “What More Can He Do” continues to be promoted to media, and I can see why – it certainly has lots of potential. Pastor Beverly Crawford is the featured vocalist on this Pentecostal-flavored piece guaranteed to raise heart rates all over the church. Backed by the singing and handclapping of P.R.O.O.F. in praise break tempo, a squalling Crawford and preaching McFadden declare that no matter ...

JGM Pick of the Week: February 15, 2021

“Pick You Back Up” Michael David Harrison feat. Beverly Crawford Independent (release date: January 31, 2021) By Robert M. Marovich If the jaunty piano opening doesn’t wake the dead from their slumber, Beverly Crawford’s characteristic evangelistic vocalizing will do the trick. Pick You Back Up” was produced by Linton Weems and penned by up-and-coming songwriter Michael David Harrison. Originally from Virginia but now living in Houston, Harrison mines that churchy traditional vibe to provide this unsubtle reminder that when you stumble and fall into the arms of the devil, the Lord is there to pick you up. If you are ...

The four harmonizing on stage together provides enough energy to run a small town for one day, and suggests they take their gospel show ...

Various Artists: JDI Classics – Gospel Music for All Occasions

Various Artists JDI Classics: Gospel Music for All Occasions JDI Records (release date: April 6, 2018) By Bob Marovich JDI Records founder and CEO James Roberson has been doing some spring cleaning. In the case of The Essential Beverly Crawford, Vol. 2 as well as with this new JDI Classics release, Robertson has been reissuing items from the company’s estimable catalog. JDI Classics: Gospel Music for All Occasions is a clever repackaging conceit and something of a greatest hits collection for the Los Angeles-based label. Some of the songs are older. For example, Norman Hutchins’ “Emmanuel” (the Christmas choice) is ...
