FEATURED ALUMNUS OF THE MONTH
James Bignon Class of 1972
Gospel mainstay James Bignon was born an only child in Savannah, Georgia and raised in New York City. He came from a large family of singers, pianists, organists, and preachers. He started singing in church at the age of five and was already writing his own material at 11. He learned to play the piano by watching his parents and soon started taking lessons and theory courses. James Bignon formed his first mass choir while attending Lucy C. Laney High School in Augusta, Georgia.
He toured with legendary singer Dorothy Norwood, and in 1983, Reverend Milton Biggham invited him to lead the enormous Georgia Mass Choir. His impressive skills as a singer, writer, arranger, and instrumentalist were key to the successful recording career of the choir.
In 1995, Bignon led the ten member choir featured in Michael Flatley's "Riverdance", introducing a secular audience to his unique brand of gospel.
Besides his headlining albums, Bignon has worked with the Gospel Music Workshop of America Mass Choir writing and recording, “He’ll Make Everything Alright” (1991); re-recording one of Rev. Cleveland’s greatest hits: “Lord Help Me To Hold Out” (1992), and again by writing and recording “God Knows How Much You Can Bare” for a 1993 GMWA project.
His soul-stirring composition “All The Way” highlighted the 1994 Gospel Music Workshop of America album, and his own “Heaven Belongs To You” achieved a Stellar Award nomination for Male Vocalist of the Year reaching the top 20.
Why Do We Exist?
The Lucy Craft Laney High School Alumni Association was organized to support the curricula and extracurricual programs of Lucy C. Laney High School. Our primary goal is to raise funds to support Laney High School. We are the official alumni group sanctioned by the administration of Lucy C. Laney High School.
It is our hope that every class will list its reunion officers and activities on our website. By doing so, we provide alumni, around the country, a single source for information surrounding alumni and reunion activities.
The LCLHSAA is not a reunion group and we have no desire to interrupt or interfere with any alumni group activities. Our hope is to serve as an umbrella organization which brings all of the alumni classes and groups together in an organized and unified manner designed to maximize our energies in support of Lucy C. Laney High School.
All funds raised by the LCLHSAA will be used to provide financial support for the students and programs at Laney High School. By joining the LCLHSAA, you ensure our ability to provide needed financial support to the school.
We encourage all alumni of Lucy C. Laney High School to become a financial member of the alumni association. The $25.00 annual membership fee helps us to continue to provide much needed financial assistance to the school.
If you are a financial member, we thank you for your continued support. If you are not, we encourage you to join us NOW. Consider making a donation to your alumni association. Together, we will return the PRIDE to Laney-Walker Boulevard.
