What a privilege it was to enter the stadium, auditorium or other setting where the Happy Goodman Family were to sing! The air was charged with the electricity of expectation! A large capacity crowd was already seated- early. The lights would go low and then the announcer would introduce THE HAPPY GOODMAN FAMILY! Following would be some of the most memorable, joy-filled Southern Gospel music any have ever heard! Nothing compared to being at a LIVE Happy Goodman Family performance!
The Happy Goodmans were definitely one of the greatest Southern Gospel Music Groups of all time- loved by thousands! The Happy Goodmans shared with us their love for God and the Joy He brought to their lives. Their songs and singing still bless us as we enjoy their recordings. Their influence is still felt in many of the Southern Gospel singing groups of today.
My first enjoyment of The Happy Goodman Family was in the late 1960's and early 1970's. Growing up in central North Carolina, every Sunday morning our family would rush with the "one" bathroom to get ready for church! On the black and white television in the fake wood "metal skinned" TV we watched and listened to "The Gospel Singing Jubilee"! Oh what WONDERFUL music from The Happy Goodmans, The Florida Boys, and others! Wonderful, beautiful, enthusiastic and joy filled Christian music honoring the Lord and cheering the soul!
My daughter, my wife and I renewed our enjoyment of The Happy Goodmans by watching the early Bill Gaither "Homecoming" singing videos. We purchased Happy Goodman tapes, visited some of the later concerts of their lives, and their influence has greatly enhanced our Christian joy! How many times the three of us would sing with them on vacation when listening to their tapes!
It is our desire to preserve for the future their zest for life so that others also may enjoy their ministry! Be encouraged- The Happy Goodman Family still shares with us today their joy in the Lord Jesus Christ!
