"Dottie Peoples" is an United States/American gospel music/gospel singer.

Born Dorothy Peoples on August 12, 1950 in Dayton, Ohio, Peoples began singing at an early age. After completing high school, she toured with gospel pioneer Dorothy Norwood, a member of The Caravans. After that, she briefly joined a jazz music/jazz ensemble, performing in various venues across the country.

Unhappy singing secular music, she relocated to Atlanta, Georgia/Atlanta to return her gospel roots.

She recorded her debut album, Live At Salem Baptist Church, in 1993. On July 28, 2008, Peoples performed a free concert at the East Birmingham, Alabama/Birmingham Church of God in Christ.

I didn't even know what I was doing. I was just there (in the moment).

It was church, totally church. Even with all of the reporters they flew in, it turned from a recording session to a church service. The spirit was there. The anointing was there. The clapping was there. The shouting was there.

Macon has been very good to me.

Because secular artists participate, somebody coming might not even go to church.
