Southern Gospel:  Tis The Old Ship Of Zion by Romance Watson.  https://pandora.app.link/rOSs4dXK1bb

Gospel singer Romance Watson was born in Chicago, Illinois on January 4, 1930 to Laura and Amos Watson. He is the youngest of three siblings. Watson graduated Fuller Elementary and Wendell Phillips High School in Chicago.  (My opinion) Romance Watson has the best male singing voice I have ever heard. If you have a chance, you should watch him sing this song on you tube. 

Until tomorrow, take care and stay safe.
