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.
