I love me some youtube and while surfing around, I ran into the Gospel Legends. I’ve read that they were all brought together by Malaco records. I mean just searching the crowd you can find so many well known names in Gospel music. Not only will you find faces you know but will be introduced to new faces and new music. This truly was an historic even to have all these Gospel legends in one room singing for the glory of the lord.
Just to name a few: Donald Vails on piano, Billy Preston on Organ, The Barrett Sisters, Albertina Walker, Delores Washington, Dorothy Norwood, Shirley Caesar, Inez Andrews, Vernon Oliver, Doris Akers, Kitty Parham, Richard Smallwood, Lou Della Evans, Mosie Burks, Bobby Jones, Jessy Dixon, Edwin Hawkins, Walter Hawkins, Maceo Woods, and I just can’t name them all.
There are a series of videos where you will see some take leads and the rest of the legends sing behind them like a wonderful mass choir! It’s amazing you see the comradely between the greats of Gospel music. Nobody was trying to over sing to make a show but a sharing of the microphone and just lifting their voices to praise God.
