A musical salute was held Thursday night for Chicago gospel singer Inez Andrews, who died December 19th at the age of 83.

Andrews was a singer and songwriter known for the range of her voice.

She got her start as a member of the Caravans, a group led by the late Albertina Walker.

Andrews' signature song was 'Lord, Don't Move that Mountain.'

Thursday night's salute took place at Apostolic Church of God on S. Dorchester, where Andrews' homegoing celebration will take place tomorrow.
