Marguerite Ewell was born in a small town in Southwest, Louisiana, called Paincourtville. At an early age she exhibited a singing talent and was given many opportunities to perform in family circles and at school where she was selected as the main soloist throughout her studies. When she was still a young girl her family organized a group called the JONES SINGERS, which included her mother, aunts and uncles.

She attended W. H. Reed High School in Napoleonville, Louisiana from 1963 to 1968, when she migrated to Chicago where she continued her education by enrolling at Chicago State University. She was asked by the GOSPEL QUEENS (an all female gospel group) to join their group. She travelled with them throughout the USA. She met and married Lafayette GATLING Sr. who is lead singer for the famed quartet "The CHRISTLAND SINGERS".

In 1981, she was one of the founders of the INSPIRATIONAL CHARMS.
