L D Frazier was born in Cleveland and grew up in Buffalo and Los Angeles. He later moved to Detroit and sang with the harmony group Richard Green’s Acapells. In 1974 Frazier decided to devote his life to full-time gospel singing and from New York he has taken his gospel songs all around the world, performing in countries including Brazil, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, Egypt and Europe as well as making regular visits to the United Kingdom.

His deep interest in the origins of Gospel music has led him to trace the evolution of this American expression from its African roots to its impact today. His repertoire includes early Spirituals of the late eighteenth century, Jubilee gospel that is associated with Emancipation in the nineteenth century, and the Gospel music of the twentieth century. He has toured the world, made recordings, appeared on TV and in films (notably “Cotton Comes to Harlem” and Bette Midler’s “The Rose”), and led many Gospel Workshops and lecture-demonstrations.

He has visited the UK on a number of occasions when he has joined Scott Stroman & Eclectic Voices in Gospel concerts, notably a concert with Paul Jones at The Barbican Concert Hall in memory of Roy Castle.
