Godfather of Gospel

Early one beautiful Sunday morning, melodic sounds were coming from a small wooden church in the country. The 6-year-old appeared in a dream-like state; as he stared anxiously, he whispered, “I can sing like that!” His grandmother, slightly annoyed, looked down as she clutched her colorful floral hat and sternly said, “boy, sit down and stop talking in church!” The firm reprimand did not stifle his urge to sing. He quietly walked up to the front of the church and boldly clutched the microphone. The moment he opened his mouth, it was as if heaven opened, and the crowd stood in amazement at the anointed sounds. Years later, people are still standing in amazement at the soulful, anointed sounds of Joseph Lindsey. A native of the Bayou State of Louisiana, Joseph was born the 13th child to the late Pastor Frank and Evangelist Frankie Lindsey in Mooringsport, Louisiana.
