Shirley Caesar Nashville, TN--With 42 albums and 8 DVD releases, the first lady of gospel, Shirley Caesar isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. After 40 years as an artist, adding one more CD and DVD to her repertoire, isn’t hard to do for the seasoned psalmist. The 12 song compilation CD, AFTER 40 YEARS…STILL SWEEPING THROUGH THE CITY, was released in November of last year, with the DVD complement released June 24, 2008 (Shu-Bel/Light Records).

The CD and DVD combo premiere rare classics from the gospel diva in the 1970’s. Hits such as “Faded Rose”, “How Many Will Be Remembered?”, and a medley of “Peter Don’t Be Afraid”, "Nobody But You, Lord" and "Teach Me, Master”, are featured with 1980s hits "Jesus, I Love Calling Your Name", "He'll Do It Again", "Peace in the Midst of the Storm", and "Never".

Shirley Caesar first burst on the national music scene when she joined the legendary Caravans gospel group in 1958. For almost a decade, she was a fan favorite and led hits such as “Sweeping Through the City.” She went solo in 1966 and released her first solo LP “I’ll Go” the next year. After that project produced her first solo hit with “Choose Ye This Day,” there was no stopping the hits which have included “Jesus, I Love Calling Your Name,” “Hold My Mule,” “Don’t Drive Your Mama Away” and the recent “I Know the Truth” featuring Tonex.

The CD/DVD, celebrating Caesar’s 40 year solo career, was recorded last July at the 300-member Mt. Calvary Holy Church where Caesar co-pastors in Raleigh, NC.
