The Five Stairsteps- Ooh Child

I think this song was love at first listen.  I can even remember when I first heard it. My dad had the Brooklyn soundtrack (which is excellent by the way!) and something about the song just commanded me to listen.


I was surprised to learn the lead singer on the song was a woman- a young woman at that!


Of course, the soul train isn't live...but I found this one which is!



It's probably the most uplifting songs I've ever heard in my life. But the meaning of it goes deeper than just an uplift message. I feel like I could write a paper on the lyrics.

Great song and if you haven't heard it, you must listen!
