I can never get tired of this great song written by the late Walter Hawkins. Although I have posted a couple of versions in the past, this one caught my ear the other day and I want to share it all with you. I cant’ find any information on the 103rd Street Gospel Choir other … Read more and listen To My Father’s House
Rance Allen is has never been your typical gospel performer. He has a totally unique style and voice; it is a crossover mix of soul/r&b/gospel and a bit of pop. But it works for what it is…very different contemporary gospel.
This is a great FUNKY contemporary gospel song with a terrific sax part and great, simple vocals with great harmonies. The tag line “Give Him Praise” can stay with you long after the song is over! And the part where they exhort, “Praise him with the horns, praise him with the horns, praise him with … Read more and listen Give Him Praise
Just released today, December 21, 2018, this is a remix of the song “One Last Time” from Hamilton…a GOSPEL remix, with President Obama reading Washington’s lyrics before it breaks into a wonderful ending gospel vamp.
A while ago I posted a version of Tina Turner singing this song, but this might be even better. It features Bishop G. E. Patterson. Growing up on Orleans street in the Lauderdale Sub neighborhood of Memphis, he was saved at 11 years old at a revival held in Holy Temple COGIC. Holy Temple COGIC … Read more and listen Walk With Me Lord

Another great version of a timeless old song to add to the two I’ve published in the past. The song never gets old and it always makes me think of the kind of life people have, whether incarcerated or imprisoned by life’s hardships, that makes them long to fly away to a better place. Some … Read more and listen I’ll Fly Away
This is a great song, albeit a tad long at just over 9 minutes. If the first 4 minutes and 42 seconds don’t quite do it for you (I LIKE it…especially the echo/reverb effect on “money’s gone”), then head right for 4 minute+ vamp. I love it; nothing special or gimmicky, just good out call … Read more and listen His Name Is Jesus
This is a classic Georgia Mass song; not sure why I haven’t posted it until now. Just too many good gospel songs to be had I guess!!
Oh my!! I have a NEW favorite song I just stumbled across a few days ago and I can’t stop listening to it!! It is a bit of a mash up of several genres and gospel styles and it all works soooo well. AND, every now and again, pay attention to the bassline…it’s awesome as … Read more and listen I’m Going All The Way
