    The people in the Netherlands love Gospel and they sure learned it from the best sources. They are the singinest white folks I ever saw in Sweden. Close your eyes and you feel like you at YPWW on Sunday night

    I am glad to see this back. This is truly a blessing for most of these singers have passed on. To see them in their heyday and overseas when there was so much going on in their own country at that time is a testament that were were still able to overcome even then. God Bless you for uploading this.

    it was broadcasted in the ’80s on dutch national television, and I was lucky to tae it on video. So, it’s not commercially available, I’m afraid!

    God always has a way of teaching and reaching HIS children wherever it is that we might be!~ I thank HIM for always keeping me and my beloved even when we could not keep ourselves! It’s a warming covering my heart to hear folk striving to make heaven their home!
