The Mighty Clouds of Joy came to San Diego to perform a benefit concert at The North Park Apostolic Church in Lemon Grove (Pastor A. Mark Garcia) on January 18, 2013. The founder and lead vocalist of the Mighty Clouds of Joy, Joe Ligon (born Willie Joe Ligon) helped bring gospel music up to modern standards. The Mighty Clouds of Joy are among a handful of Golden Era gospel quartets whose main lead singer is still with them. These gospel legends have recorded countless records over the years, and they just added one more: All That I Am, recorded live at Covenant Ministries International in Decatur, Georgia, where Bishop Quincy Lavelle Carswell is Senior Pastor.

With a career spanning more than five decades, Joe Ligon and the Clouds were organized when quartets ruled the gospel music scene. Unlike many of their associates, the Clouds made the transition to the contemporary scene, mostly due to their 1975 hit, “Mighty High.” They’ve been a household name ever since. Along with Mighty Clouds of Joy, was the Christ Connection of Southern California. As the spirit of the Lord filled the Church and the music filled the room, lives were changed and souls were saved.
