Still the Queen of Gospel
William V. Cleland | 05/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful portrait of a magnificent lady in her prime. The performances are solid and inspiring. The later segments from the 1960's are beautiful. The song "How Great Thou Art" is the best rendition I have ever heard. The interviews from 1957 give us a glimpse of the character, heart and soul of Mahalia Jackson. She radiates love and intelligence. She really was an ambassador of good will on a mission to unite the peoples of this earth. I do recommend this to anyone interested in fine singing and the life of Mahalia."

A great DVD, not only highly recomended for Mahalia Jackson fans."
Mahalia Jackson: She is still the Queen
Khalil N. Canady | Charlotte, NC | 12/01/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mahalia Jackson is still the premier intrepreter of African-American Gospel Music. She successfully blends Blues, Jazz, Opera, and Cathedral-like tones to create a powerful, rousing sound known as Gospel. When she sings " In that Great Gettin' Up Morning" you know that one day God will make the wrongs of humanity right.

I think she was gifted from God! She still sounds powerful now than she did in the sixties. I recommend people to study her style as a requirement to study classical music. She is the queen that reignth!!!!
