The LeFevres, or The Singing LeFevres, were an American Southern gospel singing group, active for nearly 50 years in the middle of the twentieth century.
The LeFevres were a family from Smithville, Tennessee, and their singing group centered on brothers Urias LeFevre (1910â€“1979) and Alphus LeFevre (1912â€“1988). As children, they sang with their sister Maude LeFevre until she married, then their sister Omega LeFevre (Peggy) until she married; their career as an ensemble began in 1921. Both sang in quartets at the Bible Training School in Cleveland, Tennessee. Urias and Eva Mae Whittington (1917â€“2009) married in 1934; she became the pianist and alto in their newly formed trio. That’s how it all began…..
Today, we honor the Lefevres on Throwback Thursday…
