This is the kind of music I had come to associate with you. People those days took time to create their music. The workmanship is written all over the compositions.
The people of Haiti have prayed for his presence. He came to them in an earthquake to draw them closer to him.

The original will always be special, but the TV studio session featuring Sam Mangwana and Rochereau benefitted from better technology and seasoned musicians who rendered a perfect arrangement.
