 Biography of James Monroe Cleveland
The pioneer of the family in America was Moses Cleveland, who emigrated from Suffolk county, Eng., in 1635 and settled in Woburn, Mass., and from whom have descended all persons in the Northern States bearing the surname Cleveland.
Cleveland established (about 1868) a large seed house in Adams, and thus was the founder and successful owner of one of the most profitable industries for the farmers of his locality, while he, too, deservedly acquired a comfortable fortune.
Cleveland was married with Levina, the daughter of Artemas Bates, one of the substantial men of Adams.

 VH1.com : Rev. James Cleveland & The ... : Biography
Born in Chicago on December 5, 1932, Cleveland was a boy soprano at Pilgrim Baptist Church, the home of minister of music Thomas A. Dorsey; as his parents were unable to afford a piano, he crafted a makeshift keyboard out of a windowsill, somehow learning to play without ever producing an actual note.
In 1950, Cleveland signed on as a pianist and occasional third lead with the Gospelaires, a trio led by Norsalus McKissick and Bessie Folk; although the group was short-lived, it brought him to the attention of pianist Roberta Martin, for whom he began composing.
After years of struggle, Cleveland was now a major star, and across the country, choir directors began mimicking his style; he soon signed to Savoy, where he recorded with the All-Stars and Chimes as well as his own group, the Cleveland Singers, which featured on organ a young Billy Preston.

One of the classic--and bestselling--gospel recordings, this live release from 1962 has all the trademarks of the contemporary gospel sound (which the Reverend James Cleveland almost single-handedly forged in the 1950s as composer and arranger for the vibrant Caravans).
Cleveland's vocals raise the roof, and the Angelic Choir provides the perfect counter-punch, complemented by bluesy keyboards and swinging percussion (the drums on "I Will Wear a Crown" have an almost surf-rock feel).

 Rev. James Cleveland: Biography
Even his earliest material reflects a bluesy, funkified style well ahead of its time, while his arrangements of traditional spirituals like "Old Time Religion" and "It's Me O Lord" were highly stylized, almost unrecognizable from their usual interpretations.
By the mid-'50s, Cleveland was a member of the Caravans, not only playing piano but also narrating hymns in his rough yet relaxing voice; despite the group's success, however, he kept quitting and rejoining their ranks, earning a reputation as a highly temperamental character.
He also played briefly with groups including the Meditation Singers and the Gospel All-Stars; in 1959, he also cut a rendition of Ray Charles' "Hallelujah I Love Her So," his first overt attempt to bridge gospel and RandB.
