Danniebelle Hall - What kind of love is this 1975



Danniebelle Hall was born in Pittsburgh, PA the fourth of eight children. She was born to William Butler Jones and Danniebell Jones. Danniebelle learned to play piano at the age of three. She played piano for her hometown church. To advance her passion for spreading the gospel through song, she enlisted the talents of her two younger sisters and formed the trio, The Jones Sisters. She moved to San Francisco California when she was 17 years old where she met and married Charles E. Hall. n 1969, she formed a group called The Danniebelles. The group went on tour overseas. This promoted the growth and the popularity of The Danniebelles beyond expectations. They were able to record an album and minister to thousands while touring with World Vision International in Zamboanga, Mindanao, Philippines and Phnom Penh, Cambodia. World Crusade Ministries.
A few years later, Danniebelle joined the gospel group of AndraƩ Crouch and the Disciples. She was featured on such classic Gospel recordings as "Take Me Back" and "Soon and Very Soon".
Danniebelle sang and recorded several solo albums that spanned the next 2 and a half decades. One of them albums was entitled “This moment” in 1975 on Light Records. She collaborated with great musicians like Joe Sample on piano, Wilton Felder on bass, Ernie Watts on sax and George Bohanon on trombone. I have chosen majestic track entitled “What kind of love is this”. The sound quality is amazing. Composed by Danniebelle. Produced by Bill Maxwell & Andrae Crouch.
