TBR — Richmond, VA – Maggie Ingram, known for her angelic smile and love for the Lord is truly a fixture in Gospel Music. She formed her legendary group Maggie Ingram and the Ingramettes more than six decades. Their high energy and strong traditional sound always brings the crowd to their feet with their contagious hand clapping and foot stomping beats.

However recently, Maggie’s pace has slowed down a bit and her family is now asking the saints to keep her in prayer.

During a recently concert with the Ingramettes, lead singer and daughter Almetta said, “This is only the second concert we have ever done without momma.”

As she shared details about the health of Maggie she concluded by asking the crowd to keep her mother in prayer as Maggie heads towards her 85th birthday on Saturday July 4th.
