Lee Williams Biography
Lee Williams began performing gospel music as young as age eight, when his uncle, a member of a group called the Gospel Stars, put together a companion group featuring Williams and his three brothers. Williams’ uncle also formed a group called the Spiritual QC’s in 1962 (QC’s standing for “qualified Christian singers”), and when this outfit broke up in 1968, Williams took the name for his own group. Although the Spiritual QC’s toured off and on over the last three decades of the 20th century, it wasn’t until the ’90s that their music was documented extensively. Williams’ group peaked commercially with 2000’s Good Time, which entered the Top Ten of Billboard’s gospel albums, earned the group Traditional Quartet of the Year at the Gospel Music Excellence Awards, and was nominated for Best Gospel Album at the Soul Train Music Awards.
Williams led the Spiritual QCs for 50 years, until his retirement in 2018. In July of that year, the city of Tupelo celebrated both his career and retirement with a public celebration, during which he was presented with the key to the city.
