In Honor: Charles Johnson (1931 – 2014)

It was announced yesterday that Gospel music legend, Charles Johnson had passed away.  When I read the news, I immediately recalled the first time I saw Charles Johnson & Revivers in concert.  It was in 1990 at the Greenes annual singing in Boone NC.  I already had a couple of the group’s cassette tapes, most importantly One Night Revival, which every Southern Gospel collector should own by the way.

I remember playing that tape and finally getting the VHS copy to watch the actual concert footage.  The anticipation of finally seeing the group live that August night in 1990 was a concert memory I will never forget.  The group became an immediate favorite and I saw the group many times in concert after that, from Lancaster PA to Cullman AL.

I want to honor Charles Johnson and his music legacy with several of my favorite Charles Johnson & Revivers songs.
