OLDIES SUNDAY: Carlene Davis x Ken Boothe – Why Me Lord (1992)


I hope today’s Oldies Sunday selection inspires you. Today’s selection comes from Gospel Recording Artist and Minister Carlene Davis, and Recording Artist Ken Boothe. We go back to 1992 with “Why Me Lord” which was featured on Carlene’s Gospel Reggae album, “Jesus Is Only A Prayer Away“, released by VP Records. A cover of Country Singer/Actor Kris Kristofferson’s 1973 single, Carlene and Ken joined forces, and their powerful voices to deliver this inspirational tune. The song was also covered over the years by the late Elvis Presley, the late Johnny Cash, Cece Winans, and the late Conway Twitty.

If you’re reading this, I urge you to work on living a better life. At the end of the day, we believe in a higher power, and we should seek to give praise and honour. If this song hasn’t inspired you fully, check out Minister Carlene’s catalog. Give thanks to GOD, and check out the track below!
