Welcome to this week’s music post! Today I’m delighted to share a song that has been a real blessing to me in times of trouble. Many of you will have heard this song before, as it’s a popular traditional spiritual song, but you won’t necessarily have heard this version.
The performance is by J. D. Sumner and the Stamps Quartet. Sumner is perhaps best known for being one of Elvis’s backing singers, although he also enjoyed success with the various quartets in which he sang during the course of his 60 year career. As you will hear, Sumner had an incredible bass voice, and I’ve heard it said that he sang the lowest note ever recorded of a human voice. Wow!
Please enjoy this song and let me know what you think in the comments below.
