Maggie Ingram’s granddaughter Joy Harris stops by Praise 104.7FM to talk to The Belle about her new book and the legendary grandmother)
TBR — Richmond, VA – June 29, 2017 — When it comes to women who sing Gospel music the list is rather long, but when it comes to women referred to as a powerhouse the list is a bit shorter. Names like Mahalia Jackson, Alberta Walker, Shirley Caesar, Tramaine Hawkins, Vickie Winans, Dottie Peoples, and several others probably come to mind. These women have pushed forward against the odds and probably all have a story or two to tell.
Included in this list of strong women is Maggie Ingram, the former lead singer of the world renowned Maggie Ingram and the Ingramettes. She has been labeled as “one of the greatest gospel quartet singers America has ever known.”
Her history in Gospel music is rich, traditional and rewarding. Her singing career took her across the country as she walked in her faith as God continued to perform miracle after miracle in her life.
Capturing some of these breathtaking moments is Joy Harris, the granddaughter of Maggie Ingram in her brand new book, SINGING AIN’T ENOUGH. In this well written newly release biography, Harris talks about Ingram’s dreams, disappointments, challenges and her overcoming many obstacles.
