The Preacher’s Wife soundtrack was released on this day in 1996, in advance of the film of the same name. It remains the best-selling gospel album of all time. “She was a very confident vocalist. … I don’t mean she was arrogant or conceited, but after she sang a song three or four times, I think she had a sense she had done enough takes. So she would say, ‘You have enough?'” – Producer Mervyn Warren
The album is now available on vinyl (pressed on either black or yellow) for the first time ever!
