Didn’t It Rain “I Sure Do Love the Lord”
Rev. Flemming’s second recording from the studios. He shocked the nation when he sang this song “didn’t rain” on Sensation Across America hosted by Vickie Winans. He starts it off with rain, thunder, and lightning and rocks his audience with his powerful voice.
Reverend Timothy Flemming has been rated as one of Atlanta’s greatest preachers. He leads a congregation of over 8000. Twice, he has been listed in Upscale magazine as one of the 50 greatest preachers in the nation. In 1988, he received the prestigious James Cleveland Gospel Music Workshop of America Award for the spoken word and recently was featured in the February 1994 edition of Ebony magazine with Mayor Bill Campbell as one of the influencing ministers of the Mayor’s transition team.
Reverend Flemming has been preaching since he was eleven years old and recording since about twenty years old. You are bound to delight in his ‘down home’ style of preaching and singing. But, this recording – Didn’t it Rain – presents more insight into the diversity of Reverend Flemming as an artist. His huge vocal range allows him to move from bass-baritone to tenor-soprano as heard in “Summertime” where he sings all parts.
A lover of traditional music, most of his songs on this recording are traditional. Songs such as – “Didn’t it Rain”, “Move On Up a Little Higher”, and “Prayer Changes Things”. Then, listen as he moves you into a more contemporary flavor in “I Sure Love the Lord” and “Walk Around Heaven”. Classical in nature, “Somebody Bigger Than You and I” and “Summertime”, as only this voice lends to their beauty, are indeed in a class of their own.
No one can surpass the God-given talent Reverend Flemming has for singing the old metered hymn. You can’t help but go back to the days of the early church when you hear this uniquely proficient voice singing, “Must Jesus Bear the Cross Alone”. It was this same uniqueness that stirred audiences in three countries when he would sing his favorite hymn, “Pilgrim of Sorrow”, during a 1989 European tour.
” ‘How Great Thou Art’ will make the hair stand on your head,” remarked the engineer who recorded this album. Now you are also invited to sit back and listen to one who is truly a great preacher and singer.
