Singing Senior Touched Hearts

Since I was home with a bad cold today and couldn’t go to church, I did some channel surfing and found a broadcast of a Bill Gaither gathering.  This took place before Eva Mae Lafevre, a great southern gospel singer, went to be with the Lord at age 92.  As I saw her singing for Jesus, at age 90 with her son, a few tears came to my eyes.

I never got into much Southern Gospel Music, preferring a more contemporary sound, but there is something about some of this genre of music, when done by Spirit-filled Christians, that touches the heart.  Eva Mae was one of those singers.  She, along with women like Dottie Rambo and Vestal Goodman, sang in a way that not only communicated the message of the songs, but also brought a sense of the presence of God.

Due to my mother’s physical difficulties, she is in nursing care with many other seniors who are suffering.  I think one reason watching Eva singing at age 90 touched me was that I see so many of the elderly bound up in pain and suffering and not able to do what they once did.  It was thrilling to see Eva still able to stand and sing, with the joy of the Lord showing on her face.

Here’s a video of what I watched this morning. Maybe it will move something in your spirit too.



I found a two other You Tube videos of her singing in her elder years. Enjoy!
