~ HAD THE PRIVILEGE~ ~
JACKSON, MAHALIA (1911–1972) Gospel Singer
The United States’s most famous gospel singer, Mahalia Jackson.
Years ago I was on a flight from Houston to Indianapolis~ on that plane..much to my suprise... was Ms. Malhia Jackson...it was wonderful to see how many of her fans were at the airport to meet her, even that late in her career.
( This is a much earler photo of her. )
Later that evening we attended her concert ..it was one of her last...she went to be with her Lord....about a year later as I recall.
Here is her version of " JUST AS I AM"....it is brief and beautiful.
You may have to cut and paste this link...it's worth it.
