A Family Affair cover

When Betty Johnson returned to the limelight in 1993 after a thirty-year pause, she reminded America that she had come from a singing-family tradition.  A Family Affair, the first release of new Betty Johnson material after her comeback, featured prominently her daughters Lydia and Elisabeth.  Professional singers in their own right, their lovely and sophisticated voices left no doubt that they dwelt vibrantly in the Johnson Family realm. 

It was natural that Betty Johnson featured her daughters on the album as Betty herself had sung in a family fold as a child.  Betty first touched audiences in the late 1930s and 1940s as a member of the popular Johnson Family Singers.  Throughout the South and beyond, the Family sang sacred music with unchained enthusiasm, becoming one of the most popular family acts of the era. 

In A Family Affair, Betty has carried on the tradition, bringing the Johnson Family sound into its seventh decade.  Highlights from this collection include “The Very Thought of You,” “Today I Love Everybody,” and “How Deep is the Ocean” (which Betty sang on Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts in the early 1950s).
