Gospel singer Lizzie Todd Flowers came from a highly musical family -- several of her brothers went on to become composers and performers (including Phil Flowers and the Rev. James N. Flowers Jr.). Born and raised in the Washington, D.C., area, Flowers began her musical career while performing alongside her family at local churches, as well as concerts at the Washington Monument, Lincoln Theatre, and at other assorted venues along the East Coast. In addition to serving as a deaconess at Shining Star Missionary Baptist Church in Seat Pleasant, Flowers recorded gospel albums with family members with her vocals prominently displayed on the songs "Running for My Life" and "Pure in Spirit," from her family's latest release, All That I Need Comes From the Lord. Flowers passed away at the age of 87 on April 6, 2001.
