This week’s smack down feature highlights a nice up tempo Southern Gospel song penned by Mike Sage. ”In The Name Of Jesus” was recorded by Karen Peck & New River on their 1997 recording Makin’ A Difference. David White is featured on the verses to KPNR’s version.
Listen to Karen Peck & New River take the first verse and chorus of “In The Name Of Jesus”.
In 2010, Paul’s Journey decided to cover the song on their Great Big God recording. Paul’s Journey created some buzz after their appearance at the 2011 National Quartet Convention performing “This Is Just What Heaven Means To Me”. This is a perfect quartet song allowing each member to shine on respective verses.
Listen to Paul’s Journey take the second verse and chorus. Enjoy!
