Did you know that Oh Happy Day was the 1967 gospel arrangement of an 18th century hymn? English clergyman Phillips Doddridge first wrote the song in the mid 18th century. It was rewritten several times and given a new melody into the 20th century. In 1969, the Edwin Hawkins gospel singers turned it into an international hit. It enjoyed renewed popularity after Sister Act 2 in 1993. The lead singer was 15 year old Ryan Toby.
This is a cheerful uplifting song which never fails to get my foot tapping and put a smile on my face. Enjoy.
