In the summer of 1958, the great gospel singer Mahalia Jackson put her signature on one of the most beloved American gospel hymns, “His Eye Is On the Sparrow.” In July, she performed it before an ecstatic audience at the Newport Jazz Festival. A month later, she made a studio recording of the song.

His Eye Is On the Sparrow” has a simple melody, no exaggerated crescendos or theatrical flourishes. It’s a song that relies completely on the clarity of its verses and the dignity of the performer.
