"Lord, You've Been Good" - JAIA
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!
