There was nothing wrong with the video.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dear Fans of Mahalia Jackson:I would like to inform you that there was nothing wrong with this video in my opinion. As for the color on the film being poor - what do you expect people? The footage was shot between 1969 and 1972 cameras were not as high tech as they are today!! The original documentary that was filmed by Allen Miner in the summer of '69 for the US State Department was not filmed as intended because he met opposition from a lot of the promoters of Mahalia's concert that year. But he put together the footage from the concerts, her press conferences, her rehearsals and even her wake and funeral on this tape after her passing, to give fans a glimpse as to who Mahalia was; her beliefs; her faith and her dedication to singing the gospel. I loved it. Having seen Mahalia perform years ago we never really got to see the human side of her much. You know, the everyday hardworking Mahalia. It also gives you a glimpse of the Holy Ghost filled singer who could make the most convinced of atheists shout amen. If you don't believe me, watch the video and watch her sing "Great Gettin Up Mornin'" or "I Thank God" or even "Just A Closer Walk With Thee"...Mahalia Jackson does not deliver a testimony...she is a testimony...a living witness to how God can take someone small and insignificant and make her great!! And she brings out her gratitude in every song she has ever sung...this video is no exception to that fact. Buy the tape folks!!!!"
Great, there is no one with such a great voice at this lady.

"In reference to Don Loughman's post, I understand exactly what you're talking about. That's all they did was narrate. My favorite song is "Elijah Rock" and they cut 2 verses out of the song. You got one of the songs mixed up. In the beginning of the movie, Mahalia was singing "Didn't It Rain" and that's when the narrator came in. There are only a few songs that they did show from beginning to end and they are:Search Me Lord
Great Gettin' Up Morning
Come On Children, Let's Sing (she was wearing the black dress)
Joshua Fit The Battle
Just A Closer Walk With Thee
It Don't Cost Very Much
The Lord's PrayerI'm sorry, but I watch this video everyday. That's how I know so much about it. I was saying that I didn't understand why the people cut so much out. If you're a true fan of someone, you wouldn't mind sitting there and watching. No matter how long it is. And if you do get tired at a certain point, then you'll turn it off and watch the rest later.I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels like that.Peace and blessings."

"I saw this video when it was under the name GIVE GOD THE GLORY, and I had to purchase it. It took me 3 years to find it. This video is awesome. Mahalia sings my most favorite song, "Elijah Rock" and she put her whole heart into it, along with the other great songs that she sings on here.There's a little typo with the year of this video. It's not from 1957, but from 1971 a few months before she died.The only thing that I don't like about the video is that many words were cut out of the songs, but overall it's great."
