Mahalia Jackson - Just A Closer Walk With Thee

One of New Orleans' finest, a gift to all the world. There's just something about hearing HER sing THIS song at this time of commemoration. If you have even the slightest bit of New Orleans in you, you know exactly why I can't even find the words to explain

I'm glad you posted this!

I tried to find a gospel "Precious Memories" on YT to post Wed. but all I could find was a couple of country versions. I attended a memorial service on the campus of NOAH...the minister quoted the song and spoke about the memories of lost loved ones, etc. I hadn't thought of that song I guess since I last sang it in church as a kid.

I have a powerful rendition of Precious Memories by Aretha Franklin, got it from Napster.
