GOSPEL: Traditional Gospel, GOSPEL: Contemporary Gospel
Born in 1943 in Greensboro North Carolina, The Legendary Rev. Charles McLean is known worldwide as one of the greatest falsetto singers in gospel music. As a child Rev. McLean admired the great Rev. Claude Jeter of the Swan Silvertones. Rev. Mclean knew that he wanted to sing professional quartet gospel music at an early age. Blessed with the ability to sing notes that boarder on unnatural, Rev. Mclean began his professional career with the world famous Gospelaires of Dayton, Ohio at the tender age of 17. Along with a host of other legendary quartet groups, the Gospelaires recorded for Don Robey''s Peacock record label out of Houston, Texas. The sweet skyscraping background of the Gospelaires served as the perfect combination with the fiery lead singing of the late Robert "Bob" Washington and Paul Arnold. Rev. McLean left the Gospelaires in 1978 and joined Willie Neal Johnson & The Gospel Keynotes of Tyler, Texas in 1979. With plenty of experience under his belt, he went on to great fame with the Keynotes as many still remember the late Willie Neal Johnson calling on "Charles" to hit that special high note. After leaving the Keynotes in 1984 Rev. McLean focused on his Ministry and recorded two solo albums on the Ichiban record label during the late 1980s. His second solo album "Straight From Heaven" recorded in 1989 represents his last effort in the recording studio until this current project "The Gospel Train".
After 15 years away from the recording scene this CD represents the bridge between the old and the new sounds of gospel music. Having beat death, Rev. McLean feels that this project is a testimony in and of itself. He tells his powerful testimony on the moving number "Testimony". Charles brings back sweet memories of The Gospelaire days with the title cut "The Gospel Train" and "Stand Up". For the Keynote fans he presents new arrangements of the moving number "Same Old River" and the melodic "God Has Smiled On Me". Everything from mid-tempo grooves to soul stirring prayer and praise can be found on this new project by The Legendary Rev. Charles McLean. Rev. McLean is currently Pastoring in LaGrange Georgia and has returned to the Gospel road as a solo act. To book Rev. McLean or just give him a word of encouragement you may call (404) 761-7731.
