Shirley Wahls – Why Am I Crying


Shirley Wahls (born 28 December 1941) is known as one of the young pioneers of Gospel music. Singing in the Choir of the Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church under the direction of Ruth Jones and later Phillip Gilbert, Jr.
Her professional career began with The legendary group as well as the Argo Singers, the Ward Singers and the Dorothy Norwood Singers.
Although she was only a few years old, she was able to make a big big star. As the most cursory listener to any of her singles, she has a great background in the church, working with the Argo Singers, Gertrude Ward Singers, and the Dorothy Norwood Singers. By the end of the month, I have been in Chicago for the last few years.
