Gospel Gals: Mahalia Jackson

"The Queen of Gospel," Mahalia Jackson was possessed of a powerful contralto and influenced untold numbers of gospel and r&b singers. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "A voice like this one comes not once in a century, but once in a millennium." True. True. (More iPad art)
