Second Listen: "I Love The Lord" (Whitney Houston)

As we move into the holiday season, I am reminded of one of my favorite holiday classic films The Preacher's Wife and the sublime soundtrack that accompanied the film. While people remember Whitney Houston's powerhouse rendition of the Four Tops' "I Believe In You and Me" as well as her thumping single "Step by Step" from The Preacher's Wife soundtrack, people often forget the beauty and wonder of Houston's rendition of the Richard Smallwood classic "I Love The Lord."

While the album went onto become the highest selling Gospel soundtrack of all time, selling roughly 6 million copies worldwide, it is a testament to Whitney's faith that she helped bring the word to the masses. Whitney was truly a child of the lord, who blessed her with that angelic voice and allowed us to all take comfort and joy in her god given ability.

With that said, take a second listen below to her sublime performance of "I Love The Lord" and Enjoy!
