5 On Friday – Preaching To the Choir

5 On Friday is the meme created by our friend Travis of Trav’s Thoughts.  To join in simply visit his site, sign in and then share your five musical choices for the week.

October 26 was a good day for Gospel. It is the birthdate of Mahalia Jackson and Neal Mathews of the Jordanaires. Unfortunately, you can’t imbed Mahalia so you get links instead Lord Don’t Move The Mountain and Joshua Fit The Battle  While the Jordanaires are probably best known as the original back up singers for Elvis Presley, he knew them from their extensive career as a gospel quartet touring the churches of the south as well as Grand Ol’ Opry and other early country shows.

    I don’t know much about gospel music, but I do know that Elvis Presley’s voice was enough to make me stop and listen to anything.
