The Amigo Male Singers

The Amigo Male Singers


The Amigo Male Singers were an African American gospel group from north central Florida. They were directed by Alfonso Levy of Lake City. The clear diction and formal sound of the group reflects influence by the Fisk Jubilee Singers, a popular touring group formed shortly after emancipation to raise funds for Fisk University, and often credited with introducing the Negro spiritual to the general public. The Amigo Male Singers performed often at the Florida Folk Festival in the 1950s and 1960s.
