Songfacts®:

  • This Mahalia Jackson number was one of several covers Rowley recorded for her album. She explained to Mojo magazine April 2008 why she did this cover: "When I hear those songs I say, That's It! That's exactly how I feel Mahalia cuts to the core. You can hear she's sweating, she's dripping wet. On-stage I think about her and say to myself, This is what my whole life's been building up to."
