'Oh Happy Day' – Edwin Hawkins Singers

Today is Pentecost, also known as Whit Sunday or Whitsunday. As it is an important Christian holiday in the Netherlands, we publish this appropriate song 'Oh Happy Day' today.

Edwin Reuben Hawkins (August 19, 1943 – January 15, 2018) was an American gospel musician, pianist, choir master, composer, and arranger. He was one of the originators of the urban contemporary gospel sound. He was probably best known for his arrangement of "Oh Happy Day" (1968–69), which was included on the "Songs of the Century" list. "Oh Happy Day" rocketed to sales of more than a million copies within two months. It crossed over to the pop charts, making U.S. No. 4, UK No. 2, Canada No. 2, No. 2 on the Irish Singles Chart, and No. 1 on the French Singles Charts and the German Singles Charts in 1969. It then became an international success, selling more than 7 million copies worldwide, and Hawkins was awarded his first Grammy for it.
It became no. 1 in the Dutch Top 40 on 7 June 1969.

The American gospel music singer Dorothy Combs Morrison (born Dorothy Marie Combs, May 8, 1944) sang lead vocal on the song "Oh Happy Day". In the 1960s she joined the Edwin Hawkins singers. She toured with Edwin Hawkins, Van Morrison, Boz Scaggs, and Delaney and Bonnie, among others.

Broadcast date: June 1969
