The Gospel Sessions from John Lee Sanders on Vimeo.
John Lee Sanders sings live in a Vancouver studio, in this intimate solo performance on a 9 foot grand Piano. An inspirational Holy Ghost driven performance of classic Gospel, and the songs of Leonard Cohen, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan.
From The Mississippi Delta to Birmingham, Heading south from Memphis through the bayous of Louisiana, to New Orleans, from Texas to Oakland, Gospel music was the common thread that ran through the music of the deep South, and the life of John Lee Sanders.
These are songs of redemption, faith, courage, and a cry for strength to overcome temptations, in “Hallelujah” in the story of David and Bathsheba. Songs of healing and recovery from addictions, in “I Came To Believe”
These are songs of gratitude, and how God has blessed my life and my family, in the Song, “Look What God has done”. On the flip side, these are songs like, “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” of His wrath, when we disobey his commandments.
These are songs of “Amazing Grace”, and “Just For Me” and how His love and work on the cross can wash and purify the most wretched vile person on this earth, if we only repent and believe.
These are songs of humility, and compassion, Revelation and Hope, when Jesus returns and sets up his Kingdom on Earth, in “When He Returns”.
John Lee's Gospel Sounds have touched many people along the road

It seems to bridge all types of Music. God has inspired you on this recording. May he continue to bless you."

"People come to me every week, and tell me how much they were ministered to. Both the lyrics, and your gift of music are touching hearts, and that touch is spanning generations.... but it is more than that.... it is your humble spirit, and willing heart as well. We are honored to be a channel for that ministry. Bless you for your openess, and may God touch you as you touch us.
