People might say little Mahalia Jackson was born with nothing, but she had something all right. A voice that was bigger than she was.
Even as a young girl, Mahalia Jackson loved gospel music. Life was difficult for Mahalia growing up, but singing gospel always lifted her spirits. She soon realized that her powerful voice stirred everyone around her, and she wanted to share that with the world. Although she was met with hardships along the way, Mahalia never gave up on her dreams.
Mahalia's extraordinary journey eventually took her to the historic March on Washington, where she sang to thousands and inspired them to find their own voices.
Accompanied by John Holyfield's beautiful illustrations, Nina Nolan's narrative wonderfully captures the amazing story of how Mahalia Jackson became the Queen of Gospel.
