Afternoon Song – He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands

August 28, 2016

Even 53 years ago today, when the incomparable Marian Anderson stepped to the microphone at the March On Washington, “He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands” was well along its journey from spiritual to children’s summer camp song.

Don’t let that stop you from listening though. Using nothing more (or less) than her gorgeous, rich contralto, Anderson imbues the old spiritual with every ounce of dignity, majesty, solemnity and power called for by the occasion.
