Dorothy Love CoatesGospel singer extraordinaire and civil-rights activist Dorothy Love Coates was born in 1928 in Birmingham, Alabama. Regarded as a high priestess of Gospel by Little Richard, Coates was the main engine of the Alabama-based Original Gospel Harmonettes, serving as vocalist and arranger. Often, during performances, Coates got so caught up in the spirit that members of the group would have to steer her back to the stage. It's said that Mr. James Brown fashioned some of his dramatic stage moves on her style. After her daughter was born with epilepsy and cerebral palsy, Coates virtually retired to care for her. Her last recording was in 1970; she died in 2002. The postwar title "Trouble," from the album The Great Gospel Women, has magnitude and grace.
