Thank You For The Holy Ghost

A gem from the golden days of James Cleveland’s Gospel Music Workshop of America.  This was from the 1976 Convention that was held in New York City. Soloist: Geraldine Carter. The song was written by Warren D. Hickman.

(Never Can Forget) What You’ve Done For Me

Okay, so I watched a YouTube video last night of The Trinity UCC of Chicago choir singing “(Never Can Forget) What You’ve Done For Me”.  That led to a serious case of earworm and that lead to this post; THREE (3) versions of the song, each of which I love.  For the version from the Trinity UCC, I spliced in a solo intro from another recording because I love that too…you can hear the change in quality, if not a bit in pitch, but it works..IMHO.   The version from the GMWA Youth Choir has the best fidelity, and the last version is good old time music.  Have a wonderful day.  And NEVER forget all the wonderful things He’s done for you.

Down In My Soul

A wonderful old school style acapella song from Margaret Ingram’s Gospel Singers.  Actually this song is virtually identical to the song “God Is Good” (performed by the FABULOUS Joyful Voices of Inspiration…thank you Ms. Bella Harris for the wonderful lead on that song!!) that I posted a while back.

Thank You Lord

Over the past three years I must have published about 10 songs titled “Than You Lord” or “I Thank You Lord”, and still I ran across another such song I have yet to post.  Not sure how I missed this since this is a classic from the EARLY days of James Cleveland when he often collaborated with Charles Fold.  It’s a good time of year to stop, reflect a bit and then say to one’s self, “Thank You Lord”.
