Ladysmith Black Mambazo: Heavenly

Yitho umlilo ovuthayo
Knockin' on Heavens Door
Oh Happy Day
People Get Ready
Take My Hand, Precious Lord
Sohlabelelu Hosana
I'll Take You There
Rain, Rain Beautiful Rain
River of Dreams
Jesus Is My Leader
Chain Gang
He Showed Me His Hands
Ilungelo ngelakho

Ladysmith crosses cultural boundaries more than ever before to bring their musical message to a wider audience. The lineup of musicians who with whom they work is fabulous. The album begins with one of the most complex pieces of music imaginable from Joseph who admits that his music is very difficult to sing. Dolly Parton leads "Knockin' On Heavens Door." "O Happy Day" and "Take My Hand Precious Lord" features vocalist Betty Griffin. Phoebe Snow is lead singer on "People Get Ready." Bill Champlin does the lead vocal on "River Of Dreams." You'll find Lou Rawls in lead on "Chain Gang" and Hana "Coyote" Motijoane sings lead on "I'll Take You There." Among these instrumentally accompanied guest appearances which explore American gospel and R&B are an equal number of Ladysmith familiars. It's wonderful how many artists seek to share the message of hope and joy with Ladysmith Black Mambazo!
