Maggie Ingram and the Ingramettes (The Kennedy Center)

Maggie Ingram and the Ingramettes

Born July 4, 1930, on Mulholland’s Plantation in Coffee County, Georgia, Maggie Ingram worked in the cotton and tobacco fields with her parents.  It was a hard and humble beginning, but the Lord had a special place for her in life and she accepted the call at an early age.  She began playing the piano and singing at an early age and exhibited a great love for church and for the ministry of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  At 16, she married Thomas Jefferson Ingram whose family also worked as sharecroppers in Georgia.  The couple had five children, John, Lucious, Tommie, Almeta, Christine and moved to Miami, Florida.
