“Sweeping Through the City” Beverly Crawford

“Sweeping Through the City” Beverly Crawford
Posted March 25th, 2014 @ 8:33am

From the forthcoming EchoPark JDI CD "Thank You For All You’ve Done"    (release date: April 22, 2014)

Who but Beverly Crawford could rip through the classic church rouser, “Sweeping Through the City,” like Shirley Caesar leading the Caravans? 

First recorded in 1951 by a pre-teen Caesar with one of her early mentors, Evangelist Thelma Bumpess, “Sweeping” (also known as “I Won’t Be Back”) gets a pulse-raising treatment from Crawford and her backing choir.  It closes her forthcoming album, which promises additional churchy moments.  As good as, if not better than, her big hit, "It's About Time for a Miracle."
