I just watched Secretariat on Netflix and really enjoyed it. This song was featured in it. I hadn't heard it in years, and am not a Christian, but I really love this song. Enjoy.
Secretariat - Oh Happy Day!
The Edwin Hawkins Singers sang it at Harlem Festival, 1969.
Had us rocking, baby. My first visit to New York, fresh from the backwoods. LOL.
Dorothy Combs Morrison is the lead lady vocalist.
She really hit those notes, didn't she?
I haven't seen the movie, Secretariat, but I remember the year he won the Triple Crown - 1973 - the year my first child was born, and the summer of which I read the Aid to Bible Understanding encyclopedia from Aaron to Zuzim.

I watched all three of his Triple Crown races, and I distinctly remember the last one at the Belmont Stakes - absolutely amazing. Do yourself a favor and watch the mo vie.
