Jesus Hits Like the Atom Bomb: John Alexander's Sterling Jubilee Singers of Bessemer


The Sterling Jubilee Singers were founded in 1929 when large numbers of African-American men who worked in the steel mills and ore mines of Jefferson County, Alabama were forming a cappella gospel quartets, some of whom went on to find success touring and recording. Of the area groups still performing in 1998 when this CD was made, the Sterling Jubilee Singers best represented the unique Jefferson County style that once flourished there. Three of the current members had been with the group for over 30 years. The heart-felt singing, layers of powerful harmonies, and emotional exclamations situate them firmly in the tradition of the great a cappella groups that are the backbone of gospel music.
