Malaco Gold

Did you know! Malaco artists and affiliate labels have been represented regularly at the 
Stellar Awards.

Dorothy Norwood has been nominated in many categories numerous times for the Stellar
Awards, Grammy Awards
and also for a Dove.  She has won awards, hearts, and acheived Gold Record Status five times during her almost fifty year career.  She consistently sells records and has toured all over the world.  Her history includes singing with the Caravans in the late fifties, with Albertina Walker and later with Shirley Ceasar. She also performed with the legendary Mahalia Jackson and James Cleveland.

Norwood began her solo career in 1964 and her first record, Johnny and Jesus, went Gold. Norwood quickly became known by the affectionate title, "America's Greastest 
Storyteller."
In 1972, she was invited to open for Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones, which she did to great success.

During her career it could probably be said that Dorothy Norwood has shared the concert and award stage with many of the greatest gospel artists in history.
