Founded in 1948, Chicago’s Thompson Community Singers are the nation’s oldest existing community choir. This track comes from their incredible 1960 album “I’ll Trade a Lifetime”. Given the historical context and the turbulent decade that lay ahead, one has the sense that when a hundred voices get together and sing the word “Power!” over and over, they aren’t only talking about Jesus. I grew up going to church every Sunday. If we’d had a choir like this one, I’d probably still go.
