Beverly Crawford first made a name for herself as a vocalist in the New Life Singers on Bobby Jones' Gospel show on BET.

She made her performing debut at the age of three, singing at her father's church.  A few years later, she joined her siblings in a group called the Camps Sisters. A battle with cancer drew her closer to her faith, and in 1989 she and husband Todd Crawford founded the Potter's House Ministries. After appearing on recordings including the Bobby Jones Gospel's "Bring It to Jesus" and the Music City Mass Choir's "We Need to Hear It From You," Crawford made her Warner Bros. label solo debut with 1995's Jesus, Precious King; Now That I'm Here followed in 1998 which includes the hit title song and "Just As Soon (I'll Be Shouting)."

Beverly began a solo career in 1995.  Her sophomore album, Now That I'm Here was nominated for a Grammy in 1999. In 2001, Crawford released a studio album (except for 1 live song) entitled Beverly on Dexterity Records (the label of the prominent minister Bishop T.D. Jakes) and in 2003 returned to the live church setting with Live Family and Friends which includes "Higher in the Lord," "Hold On" and featured guest such as Bobby Jones, Shirley Murdock, Melvin Williams of the Williams Brothers, and her daughter Latrina Crawford.

After a four-year hiatus from recording, Beverly returned to the scene with a new project, Beverly Crawford: Live in Los Angeles (2007).  The first single released, and “He’s Done Enough” which quickly climbed up the Billboard charts and remained in the top 10 on the Single: Hot Gospel Songs Chart.
