“Rejoicing in Heaven”
Operation Faith featuring Rev. Harold Johnson (2011)
Available on CD Baby
Scripture (Luke 15:10 KJV) says, “Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.”
Rev. Harold Johnson makes vivid the emotion of this passage in his uptempo single, “Rejoicing in Heaven.” He is featured with Operation Faith, described as a “Christian/Gospel Music Experience that features various vocal artists, composed, produced and arranged by David Crawford.”
Johnson, a former member of the Motown group Devastating Affair, recreates the 1970’s Memphis soul sound, combining what some would call a couple of essential elements: an Al Green-esque vocal and spicy organ riffs. His testimony is, “Jesus claimed the deed to my life and laid His spirit on me,” which is definitely a cause for rejoicing in Heaven as well as on earth!
