The Angelic Gospel Singers were an American gospel group from Philadelphia, founded and led by Margaret Well Allison. The group continued through Allison's death in 2008. The group was called "the longest consistently selling female gospel group in African American history" by the Encyclopedia of American Gospel Music. Allison and her sister Josephine McDowell formed the group in 1944 along with two friends, Ella Mae Norris and Lucille Shird.
They recorded several songs with The Dixie Hummingbirds and toured with them. In 1961 the group added its firs male member, Thomas Mobley, and released several albums through the late 1960's and into the 1970's. In this EP are two previously unreleased songs by the Angelic Gospel Singers.
