By Request, ‘Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho’

You have to click “Watch on YouTube” to see this video, but it’s worth the extra effort.

Requested by Thewhiterabbit, two national treasures for the price of one: Mahalia Jackson on Nat King Cole’s TV show in 1957, singing Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho.

Would you believe we used to sing this in junior high school? Times change–and not for the better.
