Title: In Memory of Willa Ward-Royster
Artist: Ward, Clara
Label: Gospel Friend
UPC: 7392048715088
Genre: Gospel

Apart from outdrawing contemporary blues and jazz artists for live appearances, Clara Ward and her Famous Ward Singers had no other peers in selling records. They kept an earthy sound, despite refined arrangements and accomplished musicianship. Soprano Marion Williams (later the celebrated leader of the super gospel group, the Stars of Faith) is the featured soloist on many of the songs on the CD. Gospel expert Anthony Heilbut has contributed with intriguing observations in the notes, written by Robert Sacr'. These 25 recordings span the years 1949-1958.
