Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Margie Alexander (born Marjorie Lucille Alexander, 11 October 1948) is an American gospel and soul singer. She was born in Carrollton, Georgia, and began singing in her church. By the mid-1960s she was a member of the Gospel Crusaders of Los Angeles. In 1968, she moved to Atlanta, worked at the Club 400, and joined Clarence Carter's band as a back-up singer. By 1971 she had a recording contract with Atlantic Records, where Clarence Carter produced the single "Can I Be Your Main Thing," written by Hubert Carter and featuring electronic piano by Clayton Ivey. Although the record was not a hit, it has subsequently been widely anthologised as a classic example of Southern soul music.show more
