Today’s inductee goes back to 1973; “King Jesus”. A slew of artists recorded the song during this time but it was one rendition that became the most popular. That rendition was from the Oak Ridge Boys.
The song was found on the group’s 1973 album, Street Gospel. A year later (1974) the Oak Ridge Boys would record a live version of “King Jesus” on Gospel Gold.
Maurice Delamont is honored by writing this Southern Gospel classic.
