#28DaysOfBlackHistory #Day10 Chicago’s own Mahalia…
Chicago’s own Mahalia Jackson, the Queen of Gospel. So much has been said over the Beyoncé / Ledisi performance fiasco, but I’m sorry Ms. Jackson (Whoooooooo) is the original voice behind that master piece.
Arguably one of the most influential gospel singers in the world in her era and recorded 30 albums (and yall can’t make 1 smh).
I’ve heard she had a crib in the neighborhood that raised me. Not sure if that’s true but if so, Chatham stand up!!!!
Words from the original MJ,
"I sing God’s music because it makes me feel fee; it gives me hope. With the blues, when you finish, you still have the blues"
Let that marinate….
Praises to the most high on #TestifyTuesday, God is awesome!!! Now, go be a blessing to someone ✌️
