Happy Birthday 2 Ya “Mahalia Jackson” Queen of Gospel

Submitted by on Thursday, 26 October 2017No Comment

Mahalia Jackson, born October 26, 1911, best known as the Queen of Gospel, is one of the most lauded singers ever; as well as an activist and TV personality. Her recording of Move On Up a Little Higher was a major hit. It became the highest selling gospel single in history. She worked with artists like Duke Ellington and Thomas A. Dorsey and also sang at the 1963 March on Washington at the request of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

 

In 1959, Jackson appeared in the film Imitation of Life. By the end of the decade, much of Jackson’s work featured crossover production styles; she was an international figure, with a performance itinerary that included singing at President John F. Kennedy’s inauguration.

 

Jackson was also an active supporter of the Civil Rights Movement. She sang at the March on Washington at the request of her friend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1963, performing I Been Buked and I Been Scorned. In 1966, she published her autobiography Movin’ On Up. After King’s death in 1968, Jackson sang at his funeral and then largely withdrew from public political activities. (via Biography)
