The Mighty Clouds of Joy        

Grammy-Winning Group & Gospel Legend

The Mighty Clouds of Joy is an American traditional gospel music quartet.

The Mighty Clouds of Joy was formed in 1960 and started out in a tradition-based style. Eventually they added soul, R&B and rock flourishes into their musical mix (one of their early hits was produced by Gamble and Huff) without diluting the essential religious essence of their material. The long-lived group flourished throughout the rest of the 20th century, scoring numerous Grammy Awards and nominations, as well as several hit albums along the way.

Based in Los Angeles, California, the original group members include Joe Ligon, Jimmy Jones, Johnny Martin, Ermant Franklin Jr., Artis Turnbough, Elmo Franklin, Richard Wallace, Rodney Hamilton, Leon Polk and David Walker (who also recorded several tracks with Link Wray under the name Bunker Hill).
