"I sing God's music because it makes me feel free," Mahalia Jackson once said. "It gives me hope. With the Blues, when you finish, you still have the blues." It is in this uplifting and inspiring spirit that we present the most comprehensive collection of the music of "The Queen Of Gospel" to date. Her powerful voice and moving delivery made this woman from the poorest part of New Orleans one of the most influential Gospel artists ever, while her activism for civil and human rights turned her into "the single most powerful black woman in the United States", according to Harry
Recording more than thirty albums during the forty years of her incredibly international career, Mahalia Jackson was also one of the first Gospel-artists to receive "Gold"-records for sales in excess of 1.000.000 copies for some of her singles. All of these and many more of her greatest hits are included in this 10-CD-collection - a moving testament to the power of faith, always heartwarming and inspirational.
