Best known for their 1982 song "Rest Awhile," The Mighty Golden Bells were formed in Raleigh, North Carolina in the early 1960's.  

The group originally consisted of between 15-17 members, and was known as The Mighty Jubilees.

Brothers William & Everett Sanders eventually whittled the group down to four, and enjoyed a career as a quartet in the gospel music industry for over 40 years.

"Something" is a great example of late 60's - early 70's raw gospel, with only guitar, bass, & piano accompanying Brother Sanders' shouts of "C'mon Jesus!"
