R.I.P. Inez Andrews

Chicago gospel icon Inez Andrews was the last of her kind, a towering figure from a golden age when giants such as Mahalia Jackson, Albertina Walker and DeLois Barrett Campbell still toured the world.

Andrews' throaty contralto made her low notes thunder, while the enormous range of her instrument enabled her to reach stratospheric pitches without falsetto. Her dramatic delivery made her a charismatic presence in church and on stage.

So that leaves Shirley Ceasar and Dorothy Norwood as the last surviving famous members of the Caravans?

RIP Inez. Great voice.
