His Eye is on the Sparrow by Marvin Gaye



If I knew that Marvin Gaye had recorded the gospel song "His Eye is on the Sparrow," then I forgot it but learned it again reading his American Masters bio at PBS. I immediately checked YouTube and decided to post the video. "His Eye is On the Sparrow" was one of my mother's favorite hymns. She liked it no matter who sang it.

Good catch, VP. Never heard this song by the great Marvin Gaye. Strangely coincidental that we'd both post favorite songs of our mothers within hours of each other. Thank you.

Nordette,

Have you seen that particular show? If you have had the opportunity to watch it-what do you think about it?

I love this song, too - no matter who sings it. Although, I did hear a woman sing it today that would not make it to my list of favorites. Nonetheless, it is the message that is so inspiring.

BTW, just wanted to let you know that I left you a little something...
