I broke my gospel Music diary with an autoplay embed in a comment. This made it difficult to hear all the great music other commenters posted. So I have archived the songs here.
Here's a link to the original diary in case you want to read it. Play the music here and add new songs that changed the world to this diary.
I said deep in my heart Lord I do believe that we shall overcome some day.
A message of hope.
"We Shall Overcome" was one of the most powerful statements during the Civil Rights struggle. Here's some more links.
And here's Mahalia Jackson and Louis Armstrong bringing New Orleans to the Newport Jazz Festival singing "Just A Closer Walk With Thee" and "When The Saints Go Marching In".
Mahalia Jackson and Louis Armstrong
I hope I got these all right. Let me know if you find any mistakes.
I just love this stuff. Please add links and embeds to other Gospel music that changed the world in the comments.
