Mosie Lister’s Feeling Mighty Fine

Fifty-some years ago, legendary southern gospel songwriter Mosie Lister woke up with heaven on his mind. Yesterday morning, he woke up in heaven.  He leaves behind a wealth of classic songs and an untold number of people who’ve been touched by them. From “Where No One Stands Alone” to “Til the Storm Passes By” to “I’m Feeling Fine,” these are gospel standards that are simply never going to get old.

In considering what song or performance to feature for this post, I thought of the time when a 7-year-old boy marched on stage with Legacy Five and proceeded to blow people away by belting out a Lister number like a pro. So I thought I would revisit it here. May gospel music never die.
