Andrews got her start as a member of The Caravans in the 1950s and early 60s. Along with Albertina Walker, Dorothy Norwood, James Cleveland, Shirley Caesar, Cassietta George, Josephine Howard, Eddie Williams, James Herndon, and Delores Washington, she became one of the major stars of gospel's golden age. The Caravans produced songs such as "Lord Keep Me Day By Day", "Remember Me" "I Won't Be Back" and several other hits in which Andrews was lead vocalist, including "Mary Don't You Weep", "I'm Not Tired Yet", "Make It In", "He Won't Deny Me" and "I'm Willing".

She released a reunion album with The Caravans, Albertina Walker, Dorothy Norwood, and original soprano Delores Washington, entitled Paved the Way.

She also wrote songs that many artists recorded. It was the Caravans' Inez Andrews-led version of the old spiritual "Mary Don't You Weep,"that is considered one of the most memorable gospel performances of the era. That version of her song was recorded by the great Aretha Franklin for her Amazing Grace Gospel album.

Andrews was also known for her signature song, "Lord Don't Move That Mountain.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Andrews described the legacy she wanted to leave behind. "I'd like to be remembered as a person who lived the life they sang about," Andrews said in the Tribune interview. "And I would hope that my conduct in life would be such that someone would want to see me again on the other side."

Ms. Andrews is survived by her son Richard, who is now Ms. Franklins pianist, three other sons, Casey, Mark and Wendell Edingburg Jr.; three daughters, Legretta Moultry, Gail Perkins and Suzanne Edingburg; 17 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
