Happy Voices - Sur la Route du Gospel Happy Voices

Album : Sur la Route du Gospel (2006)

Double album en concert "Sur la route du Gospel" du trio Happy Voices.

Le groupe Happy Voices est né au début de l'année 2004, à l'initiative de Noémie Roullier et Virginie Masset.

Elles sont liées d'une forte amitié depuis six ans qu'elles chantent ensemble ! Et c'est Hélène Bondaz qui vient compléter le trio. Pour ces trois artistes, la scène est une vraie source de bonheur, de joie. Pour elles, l'essentiel, est de créer une relation intense avec le public. Leur complicité jaillit aux yeux de tous ! D'abord surpris de voir trois petits bouts de jeunes femmes blanches, chanter du Gospel, le public est aussitôt transporté dans une ambiance forte en émotions. Le trio est accompagné par l'excellent pianiste Jean-Jacques Ramahéfarivony.

Le trio n'hésite pas à revisiter des morceaux de répertoires différents, au service du partage. Avec plus de 350 concerts depuis 2004 le groupe Happy Voices est un acteur incontournable de la scène Gospel Française, en 2007, il représente la France au festival international de voix de femmes le "Massao" à Douala au Cameroun !

Distillant un Gospel dynamique et moderne, en conservant l'âme de cette musique, Happy Voices est capable de réveiller n'importe quel auditoire avec des classiques comme Happy Day, ou d'envoûter en toute intimité avec des "A Cappella" somptueux. 2008 annonce la sortie du troisième album du groupe, qui sera encore une fois un double CD en concert !





Happy Voices - Armstrong
Album : Armstrong (Gospel) (2004)

Why should I feel discouraged ?

Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heaven and home ?

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T'was Grace that taught.
My heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
We have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far
And Grace will lead us home.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

Armstrong

Armstrong, je ne suis pas noir
Je suis blanc de peau
Quand on veut chanter l'espoir
Quel manque de pot
Oui, j'ai beau voir le ciel, l'oiseau
Rien, rien, rien ne luit là-haut
Les anges... zéro
Je suis blanc de peau.

Armstrong, tu te fends la poire
On voit toutes tes dents
Moi, je broie plutôt du noir
Du noir en dedans
Chante pour moi, Louis, oh oui
Chante, chante, chante, ça tient chaud
J'ai froid, oh moi
Qui suis blanc de peau.

Armstrong, la vie, quelle histoire ?
C'est pas très marrant
Qu'on l'écrive blanc sur noir
Ou bien noir sur blanc
On voit surtout du rouge, du rouge
Sang, sang, sans trêve ni repos
Qu'on soit, ma foi
Noir ou blanc de peau.

Armstrong un jour, tôt ou tard
On n'est que des os
Est-c'que les tiens seront noirs
Ces'rait rigolo
Allez Louis, Alleluia
Au delà des nos oripaux
Noirs et blancs
Sont ressemblants
Comme deux gouttes d'eau.

Hallelujah I Just Love Him so

Let me tell you 'bout a boy I know
He's my baby and he lives next door
And every morning when the sun comes up
He brings me coffee in my favorite cup
That's why I know
Yes I know
Hallelujah, I just love him so.

In the evenin' when the sun goes down
And there is nobody else around
He kisses me and he holds me tight
And whispers "Baby, everything is alright"
That's why I know
Yes I know
Hallelujah, I just love him so.

When I call him on the telephone
And tell him that I'm all alone
By the time I count from one to four
I hear him knockin' on my door

Let me tell you 'bout a boy I know
He's my baby and he lives next door
And every morning when the sun comes up
He brings me coffee in my favorite cup
That's why I know
Yes I know
Hallelujah, I just love him so.

In the evenin' when the sun goes down
And there is nobody else around
He kisses me and he holds me tight
And whispers "Baby, everything is alright"
That's why I know
Yes I know
Hallelujah, I just love him so

When I call him on the telephone
And tell him that I'm all alone
By the time I count from one to four
I hear him knockin' on my door

Let me tell you 'bout a boy I know
He's my baby and he lives next door
And every morning when the sun comes up
He brings me coffee in my favorite cup
That's why I know
Yes I know
Hallelujah, I just love him so.


Touch me, Lord Jesus

Touch, touch me, Lord Jesus, with thy hand of mercy
Make each throbbing heartbeat, feel thy pow'r divine.

oh, take my will forever, I will doubt thee never
oh, cleanse, cleanse me dear Savior, make me wolly thine.

Guide, guide me Jehovah, through this vale of sorrow
I am safe forever, trusting in thy love.

oh, bear me through the current, o'er the chilly Jordan
Lead, lead me dear Master, to my home above.


Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho

[Refrain]
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho.
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho,
And the walls came tumbling down

1.
You may talk about a man of Guidion,
You may talk about a man of Saul,
But there's no man ass good as Joshua
In the battle of Jericho

[Refrain]

2.
Up to the wall of Jericho
He walked with a spear in hand
He blowed those ram horns Joshua
The battle is in my hand.

Lean on me

1.
Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow.

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on.

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you don't let show.

[Refrain]
So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on.

2.
Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on.

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me.

[Refrain]
So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on.

3.
Lean on me when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
Till I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on.

Hallelujah

Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you ?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you ?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah


Oh, when the Saints

Oh, when the saints go marching in,
Oh, when the saints go marching in

When the sun begins to shine.

When the saints go marching in.

Yesterday

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be,
There's a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why she had to go I don't know she woldn't say.
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play.
Now I need a place to hide away.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Mm mm mm mm mm.


Think

Freedom (8 fois)

Think (7 fois)

You better think, think 'bout what you try to do to me
Think, let your mind go let yourself be free.

Let's go back, let's go back, let's go 'round or back when
I didn't even know you, you couldn't be too much more than ten.
I ain't no psychiatric, I ain't no doctor with degrees.
But it don't take too much IQ to see what you're doing to me.

You better think, think 'bout what you try to do to me
Think let your mind go, let yourself be free.

Freedom (8 fois)

There is nothing you could ask, I can answer you what I want.
And I'm gonna change my mind if you keep doin' things I don't.
You better think, think 'bout what you try to do to me
Think let your mind go, let yourself be free.

You need me and I need you
Without each other
There is nothing people can do.

Freedom (8 fois)

People going 'round everyday playing games and taking scores
Try to make other people lose their mind, well be careful don't you lose
You better think, think 'bout what you try to do to me
Think let your mind go, let yourself be free.

You need me and I need you
Without each other
There is nothing people can do.

Freedom (16 fois)
