“He Brought Joy”
Bryan Andrew Wilson feat. the Wilsonettes
Bryan’s Songs / CE Music

By Robert M. Marovich

On the super up-tempo “He Brought Joy,” gospel stylist and Danville, Illinois, native Bryan Andrew Wilson contemporizes “I Can Tell the World,” a song first recorded about a century ago by the Taskiana Four and, as sung by Bertha Wise and the Wise Singers, is said to have inspired Roberta Martin to form the Roberta Martin Singers.

Along with his wife Tiffany and mother Sheila as the Wilsonettes, Wilson injects plenty of Pentecostal fervor (and his band plenty of percussion) into this seasonal song that works all year long.
