Biography

Active: 1950s
Country Of origin: United States of America

Eugene Church was an R&B singer who became a sometime-collaborator with Jesse Belvin during the mid-'50s -- the two recorded together for the Bihari brothers' Modern Records label under the name the Cliques, releasing a successful single of "The Girl in My Dreams" in 1956. He subsequently sang backup on Belvin's records, and was heavily influenced by Belvin on his 1959 single "Pretty Girls Everywhere," co-authored by Church and his fellow Belvin backup singer, Tommy "Buster" Williams. The latter, credited to Eugene Church & the Fellows on the Class Records label, was followed by three subsequent singles: "Miami," "Good News" (on Rendezvous Records), and "Mind Your Own Business" (on King Records). Church's later career was spent in Texas, where he performed and recorded gospel music, and he subsequently moved to Los Angeles and went back into secular music, singing in doo wop shows in the 1990s. ~ Bruce Eder~ Rovi
