Everyone enjoys a good “knees up” every now and then, and this album certainly inspires the worship party vibe. The collection of well known Southern gospel and traditional spiritual songs, such as “I Go To The Rock” and “Because He Lives” provides an album rich in diversity. Jessy Dixon has also included some unusual material such as a gospel arrangement of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, which showcases some inspirational string arrangements. Some of the musical arrangements show influences of country music and laid back Southern soul. Dixon uses the backdrop of thick, treacle-style choir harmonies to create a strong lead vocal, which has the listener singing along with the CD!

Product Description
There are so many accolades that one could apply to this gentleman of gospel music. Jessy Dixon's long and outstanding career sees him ageless in appearance and performance. His smooth but ever energetic vocals glide through 12 songs which have become classics in his live concerts and other Homecoming videos. These include songs like 'Bridge Over Troubled Water, Because He Lives' and 'I Choose Joy.' Even now there are very few artists who can hit a top high note so sweetly as Jessy, but he has been singing since the tender age of five, so he definitely knows how. His association with Bill Gaither has gained him a whole new audience of faithful friends. And you too will number in that circle of Jessy Dixon fans with this great selection. A true gospel lover's favourite.
