Hooray, I finally got a playlist!

Hey Y'all! Hope you're enjoying some of my favorite songs. I finally figured out what I was doing wrong with loading the songs I wanted. There are a couple that I couldn't find, no matter how hard I tried. I LOVE Ella Fitzgerald, and I tried to find her singing Basin Street Blues and So in Love. But, I had to settle on other artists, if I wanted to have the songs on my playlist at all. Also, I couldn't find Young and Innocent by Elefante, and a few others that I really love, but this is an eclectic mix of what I guess you'd call my taste in music. It's kinda a hodge-podge of many different things. I'm still adding and changing a few things here and there. One of my very favorites is the last selection, by Mahalia Jackson, who was undoubtedly one of the greatest gospel singers EVER! When I found her music several years ago, I was as impressed by her words as I was with her voice. What I mean is that her heart shines through. She believes what she sings about. Here are a few quotes by her...
When you are through with the blues, you've got nothing to rest on. When you sing gospel you have a feeling there is a cure for what's wrong. Blues are the songs of despair, but gospel songs are the songs of hope. ~Mahalia Jackson
Well, I hate to run, but I'm hosting my weekly women's Bible study here at my house in less than an hour, so I visit with y'all a little later. -Be blessed!
