Cerys Matthews celebrates the life of one of her musical heroines, the great gospel singer Mahalia ("Halie") Jackson, who died in 1972. Jackson became one of the most influential gospel singers in the world at the height of her popularity, inspiring singers like Aretha Franklin and Mavis Staples. But she was also one of the unsung heroes of the civil rights movement in America, described by the legendary historian and broadcaster Studs Terkel as one of the bravest people he'd ever met.

I was honored to accompany her on Stud's program in Chicago, years ago.
Her humanity was as large as her musical voice and talent.

Wish I had a tape of what we did.

Her concert with the Weavers and Big Bill Broonzy at the Old Town School of Folk Music in 1962 was indelibly implanted on my brain.

How good was it? A little blonde girl about six years old was standing in the aisle of the concert, mesmerized, swaying back and forth in rhythm.
