Gospel's Bring It to Jesus and the Music City Mass Choir's
We Need to Hear It From You, Crawford
made her Warner label solo debut with 1995's Jesus, Precious King

Two years later Book of Life
was issued. She was also the pastor and founder of Beverly "BAM" Crawford Ministries, Bible Enrichment Fellowship International Church and Bible Enrichment Seminars.
