Mahalia Jackson Silent Night

Music

Mahalia Jackson, Silent Night: Songs for Christmas, Columbia CL 1903. 1966.

Either you like Gospel music or you don’t. If you do, Mahalia is the queen. She was so influential, even outside of Gospel music, that Aretha Franklin sang at her funeral and the great Duke Ellington worked long and hard to get her to record with him. Just watch the vid below.
