Summary:
This film "documents the Golden Age of Gospel Music in its dying hour and pays homage to the music's pioneers in their extreme old age. Though Willie Mae Ford Smith, Thomas A. Dorsey and Sallie Martin lived years after 1980, they would never again be strong enough to both recall and embody the soul of gospel. In the language of the church, each of them had a charge to keep and a story to tell."--Guide. Also profiles  Read more...
