The Queen of Gospel, Albertina Walker passed away after a long battle with illness. She was 81.

She recently had trouble breathing and was rushed to a Chicago Hospital where she was placed on a ventilator.

Later the group launched the careers of Pastor Shirley Caesar, Inez Andrews, Delores Washington, Cassietta George, Evangelist Dorothy Norwood and the "King of Gospel" the Reverend James Cleveland. This rightfully earned Walker the title "The Star Maker" since she was the one who discovered these legends of Gospel music. The Caravans achieved great success acclaimed household name with hits like Sweeping Through The City, Mary Don't You Weep, Walk Around Heaven, and Lord Keep Me Day By Day.
