VICKIE released this in 1986 and another version in 1994. This is 1st worldwide rendition. Feel free to enjoy other versions. YOU WILL NOT DISCREDIT HER ON THIS PAGE! Go somewhere else. Will not happen. I repeat a choir did NOT write this song or record it first. This is DOTTIE RAMBO's song; Sandi Patti recorded it also Vickie... there is a choir's version recorded but they did not reach chart status with their version.
