The Gospel singing group called The Downings recorded a lot of great gospel songs. Here is a short history I found on a site called Southern Gospel History.

The Southern Gospel group, the Downings, were a mixed quartet founded by the husband and wife team of Paul Downing and Ann Downing. Other founding members were Greg Gordon?, Sue Dodge? (Sue Chenault), and pianist Dickie Matthews?.

The group went through several personnel changes throughout the early to mid 1970s, and eventually disbanded in 1977. The group released 18 albums in 8 years. Ann and Paul were voted favorite female singer and favorite bass singer respectively in 1973 in the Singing News Fan Awards.

Paul and Ann were in the process of trying to reform the Downings when Paul passed away in 1992.

So enjoy one of their songs.
