” Oh Happy Day “(1968) “All God’s Children Got Soul”(1969)

A 1967 gospel music adaptation of the 1755 hymn by clergyman Philip Doddridge, ” Oh Happy Day ” is a favorite of many people. It was recorded by theEdwin Hawkins Singers and became a worldwide success in 1969, peaking at No. 4 on the US Singles Chart, No. 1 in France, Germany, and the Netherlands, and No. 2 on the Canadian Singles Chart, UK Singles Chart, and Irish Singles Chart, among other countries and regions. Since then, it has been a staple of gospel music. Initially, a muted piano, drums, and bass accompany lead singerDorothy Combs Morrison on the left-hand stereo channel.

The music is remarkable for its crystal-clear sound, which is especially impressive considering the track’s loud voices and the inexpensive equipment utilized to record them.

Origins

The hymn “Oh, Happy Day,” arranged in the gospel style by Edwin Hawkins, has a long history of popularity. A hymn composed in the mid-18th century (“O joyful day, that established my decision”) by English priest Philip Doddridge (based on Acts 8:35) and set to a 1704 tune byJ. A. Freylinghausen, the song had its start as a choral piece. A new melody, as well as a chorus, was added by Edward F. Rimbault in the mid-19th century, and it became widely used at baptismal and confirmation rituals in the United Kingdom, as well as in America.

A new arrangement of Charles Wesley’s 1740 song ” Jesus, Lover of My Soul” appeared on the B-side of the single, which was composed by Hawkins himself.

Recording

To give the hymn a more gospel feel, Hawkins changed the arrangement. He also included a piano introduction that he claims was inspired by the music of Sérgio Mendes, a Brazilian composer. While recording the song in 1967, lead vocalist Dorothy Morrison incorporated some lyrical improvisations inspired by James Brown, which she claimed “made the song sound even more current.”

Legacy and influence

A “standard” in no time, Hawkins’ arrangement has been recorded by hundreds of musicians and is still in use today. It was listed on theRIAA’s Songs of the Century list, and Hawkins was awarded a Grammy for Best Soul Gospel Performance in 1970 for his performance (performed by the Edwin Hawkins Singers). Parts of the song “Oh Happy Day” are used in live performances and acoustic versions of Nick Cave’s song ” Deanna ” (1988), showing that Cave was inspired by the song. In his 1970 international smash single “My Sweet Lord,” George Harrison noted that the song served as a significant source of inspiration.

Big Momma’s House, Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, David LaChapelle’s 2005 filmRize, Robin Williams’ 2007 movieLicense to Wed, the 2010 biographical film Secretariat (in which the song is played when Secretariat wins the Belmont), and Spike Lee’sBlacKkKlansman are all films in which the song appears.

Spiritualized, a space-rock band from the United Kingdom, performs this song often as the concluding song of their live shows.

  • Mrs. Dorothy Combs Morrison is the lead vocalist
  • Mr. Edwin Hawkins is the choir director, arranger, and pianist

Live at the Ephesian Church of God in Christ in Berkeley, California, this recording was made.

The song was also included on the albumLet Us Enter the House of the Lord, which was released in 2005. (1968). A 7-inch single was released on Pavilion Records in April 1969, followed by the Buddah Records album It’s a Happy Day, which was released in the same year.

Chart performance

  • Grammy Award for Best Soul Gospel Performance, given in 1970.

Other notable versions

  • Originally sung by Joan Baez at Woodstock in 1969, the song was then recorded by Glen Campbell on his 1970 album Oh Happy Day. The single peaked at No. 45 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, No. 7 on the Adult Contemporary chart in Canada, and No. 44 in the United Kingdom. Aretha Franklin covered the song for her 1987 albumOne Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, and Club Nouveau included it on their 1992 album A New Beginning. The track peaked at No. 45 on the Billboard R&B chart in the United States.
