The Caravans evolved out of the jubilee group Robert Anderson and the Gospel Caravans and emerged as the Caravans when Anderson abruptly left the group in 1952.  From that point on, the Caravans were unparalleled in recording hit after hit, but also in terms of the solo talent that moved in and out of the Caravans revolving door.  A number of notable gospel greats received their indoctrination into the field through the Caravans, including Albertina Walker, James Cleveland, Shirley Caesar, Inez Andrews, Dorothy Norwood, Bessie Griffin, Delores Washington, and many others. The Caravans and its progeny virtually dominated the gospel genre for over 50 years.  By the turn of the millennium, the Caravans and offsprings had amassed hundreds of Grammy and Dove Awards.

Tickets may also be purchased on the theatre’s website at www.thenewmccreetheatre.com .  Contact Charles H. Winfrey for additional information.
