The Roberta Martin Singers were an African-American gospel group based in the United States. The group was founded in 1933 by Roberta Martin, who in that same year had just become acquainted with gospels music, which was different from the traditional spirituals which were popular at the time. Theodore Frye and Thomas A. Dorsey were directing a junior choir at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Chicago, Illinois, and asked Martin to serve as the accompanist.

Founded the Martin-Frye Quartet, later named the Roberta Martin Singers, with Frye and the help of Dorsey. Early group members included Robert Anderson, James Lawrence, Norsalus McKissick, Eugene Smith, Romance Watson, and Willie Webb. Martin added Bessie Folk and Delois Barrett Campbell to the group in the 1940s.
The Roberta Martin Singers were signed to the Nashboro, Fidelity, Apollo, Specialty, Vee Jay and Savoy labels among others. Sadly, much of this excellent material is now exceedingly difficult to find -with the exception of Malaco's excellent Best Of collection. The 8-minute live version of "I'm So Grateful", which begins with a brief sermonette, showcases the captivating live appeal of the group. Also included is "No Other Help I Know", which later became a hit for Martin's friend, Mahalia Jackson. The Roberta Martin Singers recorded over 100 recorded songs and were a force in Gospel music for over three decades. They simply must not forgotten. Listening to this collection, and you will find it impossible to do that.
