L. C. ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE 23: 1965 YELLOWJACKETS YEARBOOK: CLASSES & "MAHALIA JACK

MY SELECTION NO. 23 FOR "BEST MOVIES OF THE SIXTIES" IS

"HOW I GOT OVER - MAHALIA JACKSON"
How I Got Over is a Gospel hymn composed and published in 1951 by Clara Ward (1924–1973). Notable recordings of this work have been made by Mahalia Jackson (1961, winner of the Grammy Award for Best Soul Gospel Performance in 1976), Aretha Franklin (1972 on her Amazing Grace live record album), and the Blind Boys of Alabama (2008 on their album Down in New Orleans). It was performed by Mahalia Jackson at the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963 before 250,000 people.[1]
