Oh Happy Day" is a 1967 gospel music arrangement of an 18th-century hymn by clergyman Philip Doddridge. Recorded by the Edwin Hawkins Singers, it became an international hit in 1969, reaching No. 4 on the US Singles Chart, No. 1 in France, Germany, and the Netherlands and No. 2 on the Canadian Singles Chart, UK Singles Chart, and Irish Singles Chart. It has since become a gospel music standard.
Edwin Hawkins, leader of the gospel Edwin Hawkins Singers of "Oh Happy Day" fame ( in 1969), died Monday (January 15th, 2018) at his home in Pleasanton, California at the age of 7. .Born in Oakland, he sang in church and family choirs before founding the 46-member Northern California State Youth Choir of the Church of God in Christ. They were renamed the Edwin Hawkins Singers when an album was recorded for Pavillion Records. Reading above that only 300 copies of the album were sold makes me feel even more special to own this wonderful song.

com to be sure to get the correct CD, but Nope. This entire CD (album) is wonderful, uplifting. I was happy enough to find 'my' song, but what a nice thing that all the cuts are enjoyable. The CD is used but like new - the only way one could tell without knowing is that it came without the outer plastic wrap one would expect - and at a terrific price. Shipping was fast, even by standard mail. 3 people found this helpful.
