Happy Birthday, Mahalia Jackson!

For Mahalia Jackson’s 100th birthday, a host of New Orleans’ finest musicians gathered at Ogden After Hours, in the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans LA.  Why?  Surely you’re joking, Mr. Feynman.  Cake.  Roof.  Tearing it off.  All that.  Herlin Riley absolutely ripped it up on drums.  Leah Chase, Sarah Quintana, and a host of other amazing vocalists raised every hair on our bodies, Jesus lovers and heathens alike.  Locals and tourists jumped, shouted, waved their arms, basically went stark raving crazy.  For $10.  Free if you’re an Ogden Museum member.  And you are, right?

And in case you missed it:
