As a teenager he moved to Detroit, where he sang with the Richard Green’s Acapells, a harmony ensemble. LD went to New York to study piano and classical singing. After working as a pop, funk and jazz singer, in 1974 LD decided to devote his life to full-time gospel singing. From his base in New York, LD takes his gospel show throughout the world. LD has sung in Brazil, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, Egypt and Europe, as well as regular visits to the United Kingdom. For over 30 years LD has toured the world with his witness in song, and has inspired whole generations of singers through workshops and concerts.
AUDIENCE ON ITS FEET~Safaa Abdoun Published: July 18, 2006 Daily Star Egypt.

“American singer LD Frazier turns every song into a story.”

American gospel singer LD Frazier put forth an astounding performance at the American University in Cairo. After his opening numbers, Frazier turned to the audience in the Oriental Hall, saying “It’s a pleasure to be here and feel free to get up and dance, sing and sway along.” With every song, Frazier told the audience a story. Through these stories, the audience got to know him better. The fast rhythm and beat of the song “I'm on My Way to Heaven and I'm So Glad the World Can't Do Me Any Harm,”  really got the concert going, as the audience could no longer resist getting up, clapping and dancing.
