The Rev. “Singing” Sammy Lewis was born in 1921 and began singing with the Roberta Martin Singers. He became a popular gospel music singer. In 1949 he recorded four sessions with Aristocrat, who managed to spell his surname incorrectly on the labels. Shortly afterwards he moved to the recently established local Vee Jay record company and thence to other companies. He returned to Chess and recorded an album “What can I do” under the direction of Monk Higgins & Cash McCall for Checker.
Rev. Sammy Lewis died in 1994.
