OLDIES SUNDAY: Everton Thomas & The Pathfinders – I Shall Make It (1978)

Providing a lil inspiration this Oldies Sunday, we’re going back to Church with Everton Thomas (Now Bishop Everton Thomas) & The Pathfinders! With all the craziness going on, we need a lil peace, and soothing sounds (and other types of sound that keeps you going). Going back to the year 1978, we check out, “I Shall Make It“.

Produced by Everton Thomas and Stephen Stewart, this Gospel track was released through the Growth Label. On the track, the Sextet consisting of Everton, Jenny Tracey, Juliet Thomas, Lorna Otto, Silbert Thomas Jr., and Sharon Thomas, they come together to assure us that no matter how challenging our journey and trials are, GOD is there every step of the way, and we will be taken care of. “I Shall Make It” was featured on the group’s album, “Make a Joyful Noise“, which was released in 1978 (re-released recently), and boasts almost all original material, and Funk, Soul, and Country influences, something that not many Gospel acts would delve into. Fun fact, the album features background vocals from “Jamaica’s SongbirdKaren Smith, and Cleveland Browne, 1/2 of the legendary Production duo, Steely & Clevie (he also played Drums on the album).

Since then, Everton Thomas & the Pathfinders disbanded. Everton went on to deliver God’s word at the Immanuel Apostolic Church, while the others continued to minister to people over the years. Carrying on the legacy of the group is Recording Artist Chris Malachi, who is doing pretty well for himself so far in spreading the Gospel (and talent).

We urge you to stay safe, quarantine wisely, and stay sanitized always.
