The Nevels Sisters
From the CD Beautiful (MoLife Entertainment 2008)

Contemporary gospel singers The Nevels Sisters of Youngstown, Ohio are not compared to their Detroit inspirations, the Clark Sisters, for nothing. Veniece Andrews, Debra Jordan, Gail Nevels and April Wade have a style and tightness of harmony that only sisters can pull off with aplomb. They also have plenty of experience, singing together since children and releasing their first album back in 1984.

“Beautiful,” from the Nevels Sisters’ new CD of the same name (released last November), is God’s tender affirmation to his female creation. It’s a call to recognize one’s inner beauty and in doing so, to forsake behaviors like prostitution and addition that threaten to poison the mind and the body. The authentic string section adds lushness to an already rich RnB-flavored melody and strong beat.

Check out the single’s companion video. The Christian mime, acting out the lyrics as conscience personified, steals the show!
