The song that launched Yolanda Adam’s career from 1982.
While surfing YouTube yesterday, I stumbled across some wonderful music. There is a large black mega church in Landover Maryland named the First Baptist Church of Glenarden or, as it is fondly refered to, FBCG. This church has choirs galore and each is wonderful.

On this cut, a group of various gospel greats sing “Highway To Heaven” (formally titled “Walking Up The Kings Highway” and composed by Thomas A. Dorsey) at a meeting of over 100 “Gospel Legends” … Read more and listen It’s A Highway To Heaven
