Tammy McCann brings us the songs and music which have defined the career of the one and only queen of gospel: Mahalia Jackson.

Jackson was the most famous gospel singer ever. She had a rough childhood, and had to start working at an early age, cleaning houses. Her aunt would punish her when she did not clean well enough. Through her suffering, she discovered her voice and began singing. When she grew up, she joined the church choir, where she was noticed by a minister who further taught her to sing. She sang only religious tunes, and refused to sing the blues, only gospel. She said the blue made her sad, while gospel made her happy. She continued to sing until she was acknowledged as the queen of gospel.
