By Request, ‘O Happy Day’

Requested by “TheWhiteRabbit,” Oh Happy Day, sung by the Northern California Youth Choir directed by Edwin Hawkins–from his 1968 record album. Revel in the harmony. Revel even more in the message.

  1. I remember when I was in college back in the late 1960’s and I had lost my faith in the Bible because of being taught evolution as the truth. I took my girlfriend to a Jimi Hendrix concert at an open field somewhere in the Los Angeles area. And who was the opening act? The Edward Hawkins Singers! They were great and sang until it was completely dark out. Then the Jimi Hendrix band took the stage and played their psychedelic music. For some reason the crowd was really restless, so Hendrix finally told us all “F.. Y..” and left the stage and never came back. You can see why I remember this.

    1. He should’ve known better than to try to follow an act like that.
      I never had much time for rock ‘n’ roll. But there were plenty of other things to screw up my faith while I was in collidge. Took me 30+ years to get back on track.
