I have wanted to invite some guests into my garret for a while and let them sit down at my desk. I have finally come around to actually doing it. It’s always nice to interact with my readers through comments, but I also like the idea of presenting splendid writers, some new voices, to my own readers. I’m so glad the writer using the pen name Faith Lyonhart agreed to open what I hope will be a series of guest bloggers that will appear here from time to time. I am going to publish the first text written by another blogger tomorrow. I am very excited about this treat!
I am posting a video today, which will be a sort of introduction to tomorrow’s topic. I’m not sure how it is compared to the people that invented gospel music, but I listened to Oslo Gospel Choir in the 80’s and 90’s. So did just about everyone else in Norway. Gospel in Norway was Oslo Gospel Choir and for a long period this was also mainstream. So they appeared on popular TV shows and people that didn’t go to church, went to listen to this choir.
I haven’t listened to them for a long time, but have played them quite a bit in recent weeks. This song isn’t OGC at their best, but it’s a catchy tune that I’ve been humming for a while, and as usual their songs have a good message. This is from a concert in the delicious town of Gouda, Netherlands.
