Pastor Caesar began her career with Albertina Walker’s Caravans, one of the Top Five gospel acts of the 1950s. She then branched out on her own as a solo artist in 1966 with her own unique style of delivering songs and sermonettes that made her an immediate crowd pleaser and a consistent record seller. Over the years, she has made songs such as “Don’t Drive Your Mama Away”, “No Change”,
“Faded Rose”, “Jesus” and “Hold My Mule” into absolute gospel classics.
