Thank you for posting this video. I'm African American & was raised in the Baptist church in the 1950s on (New Jersey/ Pennsylvania). But our music was/is never like this. This music sounds "realer" . It's easy to believe that the people singing really mean what they sing & aren't singing for show.
I've added this video to my online collection of YouTube music/dance video gems, mostly from Black cultures. Google Jambalayah. I also featured it on my facebook page. Thanks again. God bless you!

"I particularly love the hand clapping & foot stomping accompaniment and the way different people took turns carrying the song on. This is real roots music. & that style has influenced so many forms of religious and non-religious music, including Black fraternity & sorority steppin and girls' foot stomping cheers."
