    @warmlandlass1 Yup….that’s her! Good eye!

    this rendition simply does not get any better–did I see Doris Akers at 4:06 sitting in the front row in a white sweater w/black decos on it??? somebody tell me, please?!
    Billy Preston played the Hammond organ at Glad Tidings Temple’s dedication in ’62 or ’63, can’t remember which. Oh, but this is a fabulous video clip–truly annointed singing and playing!!

  7. warmlandlass1 says:

    @reddz1970 YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT–GET THEM RECORDED FOR PERPETUITY–ABSOLUTELY PRECIOUS MUSIC–Doris Akers taught our Glad Tidings Temple Choir how to really sing back in the early 60′s

  8. reddz1970 says:

    Bill & Gloria Gaither need to put all these on DVD and sell them…i would love to have all these in my DVD collection…we should all write and request them to be put on DVD! THis is true Gospel Music at it’s best!!!!

    perhaps one day we’ll experience this joy just for life itself regardless of shallow exterior ‘differences’. we all gotta start rejecting the empty surface ‘differences’ that threaten to keep us Separate-But-Unequal by focusing sharply on the similarities that bind humanity together!!

    i feel =)
