'' At an early age Little Miller was acclaimed the title, "Junior Mr. Gospel Singer of 1959" in Montgomery, Alabama.  He also was a winner of the National Quartet Convention in Memphis, Tennessee.

The Goodman Trio consists of Little Miller's three sisters, Lola, Donna and Norma.  They have been singing gospel songs as a group since 1948.  Their combined voices are a complement to the stirring lead of Little Miller, whom they have been featuring.

Lola sings alto and is mistress of ceremony for the group.  Donna sings second soprano.  Norma sings first soprano. 

Pianist is Thommy Thorn.  He is married to Norma and has been a member of the Goodman Family singing group since 1957. ''
