a little Mahalia (and others)

Warning: these are links to youtube videos.  I’m allergic to embedding — it’s ugly — so just clicky if you want to hear.

I’ve been on a mission to find a version of “I got Shoes” I heard several years ago, which I could have sworn was by Mahalia Jackson.  But the youtube version I found is not the one I heard.  I sure wish I could find that version that is stuck in my head.  I’m not sure it was a cappella (I think it wasn’t), but I’m sure it was a single female voice, very strong, great restrained vibrato and not a single flat note.  Still looking….
