They used to be the Five Blind Boys of Alabama. Now there are four and they sing with the incomparable Ben Harper.
You may remember their song, "Higher Ground." It was covered by Steve Wonder, who made it a HUGE hit.
It's been a long, long time since I've heard them sing.
This video is of their performance. Live. At the Apollo. In Harlem. NYC.
It's just what I needed to hear tonight.
"When my life is ended, my time has run out
My trials and my loved ones, I'll leave them no doubt
But one thing's for certain, when it comes my time
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind."
"I got Jesus.
And when you got Jesus.
You got a satisfied mind."
Somebody in the church give me an "Amen."
