Gospel music is one of the hearts of American music. It’s in the DNA of jazz, blues, rock, country and classical music. Great names – Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding and Whitney Houston to name three — started singing in church. The list is long and illustrious.
Above is a short video on the Mississippi Mass Choir features the dynamic Moise Burks. The song is “When I Rose this Morning.” The entire video is below. It, “I’m Not Tired Yet”–another great one–and more on the choir is here. YouTube links to the songs are here and here.
A new feature to the “Videos to Check Out” is a cumulative playlist with about a minute from every song featured. It’s at the left. I sense there will be quite a clash in sounds and styles going forward.
