廢話不多說,今天就介紹一首好聽的福音。
話說,單就美國音樂,可以分成好多項目,譬如搖滾、爵士、靈魂、藍調、嘻哈等等。其中又有細分,譬如爵士,又分了搖擺、大樂團、紐奧良等等;搖滾也有分硬式搖、藍調搖、迷幻搖、前衛搖、鄉村搖等等。重點不在這啦,重點是,美國音樂還有一個特點,就是有專門唱福音的,在20-50年代的美國,福音音樂可是非常熱門,有好幾個很著名的歌手或者團體,就連鼎鼎大名的貓王先生也很愛唱福音,自豪:「這世界上還沒有哪首福音我是不知道的!」
不過要舉一個最最有名的福音歌手,我想來想去,那就是Mahalia Jackson.
這位Mahalia Jackson生於1912年,死於1972年,是公認最棒的福音歌手,她唱過的曲子多少數不清,連貓王都很崇拜她。著名的曲子有"Where DO I Go But to the Lord?", "Sweet Chariot", "Amazing Grace"等等。
這次放的這首歌,"Oh,Happy Day"也是很著名的福音之一,版本有好幾個,譬如Aretha Franklin, Elivs Presley, Lauren Hill等人都有唱過。
嗯,最有感情的還是屬Mahalia Jackson版的了吧。
