Everytime I Feel The Spirit!

In this bad quality but well fitting video,

It sums up the life and mission of Mahalia Jackson. Sometimes you just know you’re destined to do something and Mahalia knew she was destined to sing for God. One quote I loved from this reading is when she states ” How can I sing songs for white people to understand when I’m colored myself?” because at the moment she wanted to sing, but she was told that she would not appeal to their understanding, but that’s when she knew that she did not need to sing for them to understand but sing for them to understand her and the voice of other black people that they shall overcome someday.
