Mahalia Jackson: Happy Birthday to the Queen of Gospel—Born October 26, 1911
“Without a song, each day would be a century"—Mahalia Jackson
Join me in celebrating the life of Mahalia Jackson: Singer, Television Personality, Civil Rights Activist (1911–1972)
Ms. Jackson is one of my heroes with a career spanning over 6 decades and 30 albums to her credit. It is amazing to see how powerfully this woman of song was able to influence the world on Television, in the Civil Rights Movement and in our communities.
How I Got Over is my favorite Mahalia Jackson song, what is yours?
