"Lord, You've Been Good" - JAIA

“Lord, You’ve Been Good”
JAIA
From the CD Just As I Am (2010)

Oklahoma City’s gospel sweethearts Lynda Knox and Lisa Davis, better known as JAIA (Just As I Am) are taking South Africa by storm with their infectious enthusiasm that seeps through in their singing.

While South African gospel remains true to its close-harmony Zulu roots, the people there do enjoy American-style gospel, the more soulful the better, including SA-based groups like the Christian Explainers who perform in the American style.

So it’s no surprise that a JAIA single heard on SA radio these days is “Lord, You’ve Been Good.” This praise song is a classic slow-burner – Aretha style – that builds in intensity and emotion until you can’t get it out of your head. Amandla!
