"Blues are the songs of despair, but gospel songs are the songs of hope."
"He’s worthy of the glory, he’s worthy of the honor, every time I think of the goodness of Jesus and allllll he’s done for me.....My prayer has always been, ‘Give me songs that last.’ I want my songs to last after I’m gone."
Wings Over Jordan choir was the first black singing group with a national radio audience. Their broadcasts were used as a way to sneak information past the indifference of white station owners to let the world know what was happening and the injustices being done in many areas. The messages they sang were written by black writers, to give black people hope.
