Gospel Disco- NYCC

I first heard the New York Community Choir via The Ambassador himself, rocking "Express Yourself" off their self titled album on RCA. For this release they seemed to have shed a few members as well as shortened their name to simply NYCC. I've never heard the album this beautiful cut hails from, "Make Everyday Count," but would love to. This was a favorite of several influential DJs including Larry Levan and David Mancuso. NYCC also got a ton of love from the DJ/remixer Walter Gibbons who after finding religion himself wouldn't play tracks he deemed had a negative message. Doesn't get much more positive then this! Enjoy:
