An “all-star” NOLA gospel trio covers the Dixie Hummingbirds

A few weeks ago, we posted a clip of the Crown Seekers covering Sam Cooke’s “That’s Heaven To Me” for what would have been his 80th birthday. During the filming of By and By, Cooke has regularly been mentioned as the biggest individual influence for most  vocalists. But when it comes to actual quartets, there’s no contest: the Dixie Hummingbirds are, by far, the biggest influence cited by NOLA groups.  This clip features James Williams from the Electrifying Crown Seekers; Sr. Audrey Ferguson from the Voices of Distinction; and Lionel Jackson from the Rocks of Harmony, doing a cover of the Dixie Hummingbirds classic, “Christian Automobile”.
