Ben Chandler

Deacon Benjamin Chandler of The Pilgrim Jubilees died this morning (Monday, June 25, 2012) in Atlanta, GA.

“The Malaco Music Group regrets to announce the passing of Ben Chandler, a longtime member of the legendary Quartet group, The Pilgrim Jubilees.

Ben Chandler joined The Pilgrim Jubilees in 1970.

In 1979, The Jubes signed on with gospel’s venerable Savoy Records. During that era, the group recorded four albums, Keep on Climbing, Put on Your Shoes, Whensoever I Pray and Put Your Trust In Jesus. The Jubes soon became one of gospel’s top quartets. From these albums came such hit songs as Rich Man, Poor Man; I’m Happy With Jesus Alone; Whensoever I Pray; Put Your Trust In Jesus; and I’m Glad You Looked My Way. In 1987, the group signed with Malaco in 1991 and released Gospel Roots, which immediately hit the Top 40 of Billboard magazine’s Gospel Albums Chart. Their second Malaco project, 1988’s Back to Basics, reached the top 25 on Billboard’s chart.

Family Affair, released on Malaco in 1991, hit the top 20 in both on Billboard and Cashbox and was nominated for gospel’s coveted Stellar Award. I’m Getting Better All the Time earned extensive nationwide airplay in 1991 and became a favorite of gospel fans. In 1994, The Jubes released In Revival, a greatest hits album which was recorded live in their hometown of Houston, Mississippi. The charted disc became one of the top-selling gospel albums of any era.
