from Oannes blog…
A bit of an understatement but… what a voice!
Η βασίλισσα του gospel, ηχογραφημένη το 1968 στο περίφημο carol του Adolph Adam.
The queen of gospel, recorded in 1968, on the iconic carol of Adoloh Adam.
More about these reblogs
Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. • Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

I love to hear her sing, Marina. When I was a child I heard Mahalia Jackson sing in church. I didn’t know her greatness at the time, but I certainly never forgot it. 🙂
Oh…. how very fortunate!!!!!!! An experience to cherish! Me too… and later I’ll be posting one more song with her voice! 😘🤗
As I told your hubs, I forgive him for sharing this one (I have her album of Christmas songs and it is my MUST-LISTEN every year) instead of Silent Night – which, as far as I am concerned cannot be sung by anyone as well as her… 😉
I think you’re right on that last one… I think this [O Holly Night] is such a beautiful carol! What a grand voice …with extra emphasis on grandeur! Merry Christmas, Dale! xoxoxoxoxo
She had such a powerful voice – Did you ever see “Imitation of Life”? – she sang at the funeral… such a small bit but oh boy!
You mean the ’59 movie? I may have, very young not sure, although I would remember her, so … I’ll check it out! 😉 ‘oh boy’ pretty much covers it!!!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxo
Yes. I saw it a few times… gets me every single time.
Something tells me it’ll have same effect on me! 😘
Unless you have a heart of stone. Which you don’t. 😉
