The Gospel Greats

  • Merry Clayton 6:17:24 3.44 PM

    17 GIU 2024 · Podcast Music Intro and Vocals by: Gail Nobles Photo: Angela George Usage: Mary Clayton is a soul and Gospel singer she worked with many major recording artist for decades including a duet with Mick Jagger on the Rolling Stones song "Gimme Shelter". Clayton is prominently featured in 20 Feet from Stardom, the Oscar-winning documentary about background singers and their contributions to the music industry. Clayton was born in Gert Town, New Orleans, Louisiana. She was born on Christmas Day, and was given the name "Merry" because of the December 25th birthdate.  Clayton's voice as a backing singer can be heard on songs by Pearl Bailey, Tom Jones, Linda Ronstadt, and Carole King just to name a few. Clayton is often credited as having recorded with Elvis Presley. Clayton began her recording career in 1962, at the age of 14.  She made studio albums in the 70s Give Me Shelter 1970, 1971 Mary Clayton, 1975 Keep Your Eye On The Sparrow, 1979 Emotion, 1994 Miracles, and in 2021 Beautiful Scars. Beautiful Scars is a beautiful album. On June 16, 2014, Clayton was critically injured and almost died after being involved in a car crash in Los Angeles, California. She had to loose both her legs at the knees.  When I hear her singing on her album, I can understand her soulful voice and words to her songs. My favorite gospel single on the gospel album is Beautiful Scars is Touch the Hymn of his Garment. Like Sam Cooke, she can really sing that song. I'm sure she can relate to the woman in the Bible days because a miracle happened for Mary Clayton. God kept her and f God is good. His mercy is as wide as the sea and his love is deeper than the ocean.  You're listening to a show about the gospel greats. I’m your host, Gail Nobles. Today's topic: Merry Clayton.

Today's topic is the Gospel Imperials, Chilly Jordan.  You might ask what does Chilly Jordan mean. I suppose that means the river Jordan is chilly and cold. Chilly Jordan is by the Gospel Imperials of Huntsville Alabama. I haven't found any info on The Gospel Imperials. The only info I have found is there music on YouTube and Spotify.  The Gospel Imperials sound like a traditional sounding gospel group. The song Chilly Jordan comes from the Gospel Imperials 2011 album Move Satan. The lyrics you've got to cross Chilly Jordan if you want to be around the throne.  I'm Gail Nobles.You're listening to a podcast about The Gospel Greats. Tune in again next time for more.

  • Encore Gospel Magazine 3:12:24 2.57 PM

    12 MAR 2024 · Story by: Gail Nobles Background music by: Today I want to talk about the Encore Gospel Magazine that was launched in 2005 as a digital magazine and a division of Total Prayze Entertainment Group. Encore has since expanded into a leading multimedia brand consisting of a magazine, a music television production studio, Encore Entertainment, an online music video platform: A podcast network and more. The magazine features cover stories like Jekalyn Carr. It’s good to have gospel magazines. I don’t remember any black gospel music magazines in the 80’s and 90’s on the shelf at the bookstore. It was always the Ebony, Jet, and RightOn magazines that were so popular about black entertainment. There may have been some black gospel music magazines around during that time, but I just didn’t see them.  It seemed as if the Rock n Roll entertainers were the ones that stood out on the bookshelfs and television the most. It seemed like they were the ones getting the publicity constantly.  I mostly heard about gospel singers mostly through radio on Sunday mornings on a show called Inspirations Across America. There was a program on Black Entertainment Television hosted by Dr. Bobby Jones (Bobby Jones Gospel). The series premiered on Sunday, January 27, 1980, two days after the network's January 25 launch. I didn’t always know about the show, and I didn’t always have cable or satellite. But getting back to the Encore Gospel Magazine, it’s great to have it. It’s great to read & keep up with some of your greastest and favorite gospel stars. It’s great to read & keep up with some of your greatest and favorite gospel stars.

And after the course when Luther Barnes sings: I'm satisfied with the way that he cares for me ….. I knew I was being led into a story of how blessed I am. Luther was telling the story of his life and the story of others. The song comes from the album with the same title of the single So Satisfied (Luther Barnes and the Red Budd Gospel Choir).

  • Carlton Pearson 11:22:23 5.02 PM

    22 NOV 2023 · Story by: Gail Nobles Photo Credit: Scott Griessel, Usage: Wikipedia Hello welcome to The Gospel Greats. I'm Gail Nobles. According to the New York Times, Carlton Pearson passed away at age 70 November 19, 2023. He was a Christian minister and gospel music artist. I'm not podcasting to judge him about his religious beliefs. I'm not here to judge anyone. If Carlton beliefs were wrong about heaven and hell, maybe God showed him the truth before breath left his body. We don't know everything, and some things is just between the individual soul and God until the Lord comes. When the Lord comes, we’ll know everything then. And what we don't understand now like Carlton Pearson used to sing: and we'll understand it better by and by. I've enjoyed hearing him sing that song and telling the story about his mother. Carlton Pearson and Pop Winans: We’ll Understand It Better by and by-Live. He sang Jesus I'll Never Forget/He's Done So Much For Me, Father Alone (We will understand why. Cheer up my brother). Remember that one? Those songs came from Carlton Pearson's album titled: Carlton Pearson Live at Azusa 2: Precious Memories. It was his 1997 album. To find out more about Carlton Pearson, go to

  • Dr. C.J. Johnson 10:31:23 8.58 PM

    1 NOV 2023 · Song: Somebody's Calling My Name Use: Hymn Song In Public Domain Song by: Dr. C.J. Johnson Intro by: Gail Nobles Today's topic is Dr. CJ Johnson, a gospel music singing preacher and pastor. Claude Joseph Johnson is his name. He was born on May 16, 1913, in Douglasville, Georgia, the son of Will and Cora Reid Johnson. The family moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 1916. His mother died when he was young, and he with his elder and younger sister were raised by his paternal grandmother, Sarah Farley Johnson. His father, Will, was a shape note teacher in Georgia in the 1920s and 1930s. He first acted as pastor at the age of 12 at the Antioch Baptist Church in Barnesville, Georgia. He was pastor in 14 churches, including his own foundation of the St Joseph's Missionary Baptist Church. Although Johnson had been active in Georgia since his early years, he only gained wider prominence from 1964, when he came to the attention of Fred Mendelsohn, then executive producer at Savoy Records. He recorded at least 20 albums, all of which were recorded in his church rather than in a recording studio.Although most of his recorded songs are traditional, 26 are listed as his own compositions. His 1970 recording of "I Wanna Go Where Jesus Is" was a gold-selling record. I love the way Johnson sings Hush! Hush! Somebody's Calling My Name. From the 1966 album Dr. C.J. Johnson The Old Time Song Service. They didn't have music.Just handclaps, the choir, and Johnson singing. Johnson was saying I'm so glad troubles don't last always and I'm so glad I got my religion in time. Every time I hear him sing and get to the end of each line of the song, I think to myself carry-on carry-on. When you get caught up in what he's singing, it makes you patient enough to listen no matter how long the song is. I listen and agree to the end of the song. You're listening to the Gospel Greats. I'm Gail Nobles. Today's topic: Dr. CJ Johnson.

  • SEMAJE 9:8:23 2.27 PM

    8 SET 2023 · Today's topic is Semaje “I Rely”. Semaje has a ballot titled I Rely. It seems to be a popular gospel song. I love the song I rely by Semaje because that's what God has been telling me to do. Rely on him .Semaje’s song is a true gospel song because we must rely on God. I don't know much about Semaje, but I know he must have realized something about relying on God to make this song I Rely. The song must have touched others for the fact that the song has received attention. I don't think relying on God is something easy for the world. We are used to doing things on our own and that's the world’s way. When you try to rely on God, it may not make sense to the world. But the Bible say be not conformed to this world. That’s Romans 12:2. Semaje _I Rely caught my attention the minute I heard the music. It’s a very inspiring gospel ballad that could last into the future. I'm Gail nobles, and you’re listening to a podcast about the Gospel greats. Today’s topic: Semaje _ I Rely.

  • Candi Staton - Sin Doesn’t Live Here Anymore 6:8:23 8.21 PM

    9 GIU 2023 · Song: Sin Doesn't Live Here Anymore Song by: Candi Staton Photo Credit: Man Alive/Flickr Usage: CC BY 2.0 Intro music by: Gail Nobles Vocals by: Gail Nobles Today’s topic is Candi Staton - “Sin Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” The first gospel song Staton wrote after leaving her R&B career in 1982. 1 Cor. 3:16-17 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy, for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. “Sin Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” is a beautiful gospel song by Candi Staton. In her lyrics, she said: This body of mine is his temple His home away from home I must keep it spotless for him It must stay ready for his coming Swept clean with truth and love That’s why sin doesn’t live here anymore. Those are truthful & beautiful words describing the body which is the temple of God. Candi Staton is a great singer and songwriter. Some of you may know her best as a soul R&B singer, but she has made some beautiful gospel songs as well. I remember when she appeared on the Trinity Broadcasting Network TV show “New Direction”. Her sister Maggie Staton and Felicia Calloway would do background vocals for her. God gave Candi so much talent, but he also gave her a new direction. (Singing) New Direction That’s what you have given me.” That’s what she would sing when her show “New Direction” would come on the air for television back in 1989. Candi Staton is also a breast cancer survivor always thanking God. She must have done something right in her life. The Lord loves Candi, and he loves us all. Nobody lives you like the Lord. I’m Gail Nobles on the Gospel Greats. I’m going to leave you now with the intro for today’s podcast, Candi Staton - “Sin Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”.

God calls by name Shirley! Not for fortune and fame Shirley! To the Lord, one day she came. I've got to tell you again about Shirley Caesar.

She tells it like it is in her songs and doesn't leave out the truth. Ceasar has been singing since 1951. That's when she signed to Federal Records at the age of 12. You know that's a long time. And she still sings and moves like she’s twelve years old. She doesn't look her age at all. God has blessed Shirley Caesar. According to SoundScan, she has sold 2.2 million albums since 1991. She’s won awards and has been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. She has been honored with a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame for her contributions in gospel music. Caesar has been referred to as the First Lady of Gospel music, and The Queen of Gospel Music. I've bought Shirley Caesar’s cassettes and CD’s and played them to death; mostly cassettes. I was always listening out for her on the Sunday morning radio show, “Inspirations Across America” back in the day. Although things have changed in music & radio, I still listen out for Shirley Caesar. She's the best still singing and preaching the gospel. I'm Gail Nobles reminding you of the gospel greats.
