Millie Jackson

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, January 1972

MILLIE JACKSON has had one of the most meaningful songs of 1971 in her current hit, 'A Child Of God (It's hard To Believe)'. Not only is it a deeply moving lyric, but Millie handles it so well that it adds a new dimension to the actual message. The content of the latter is that Millie considers some of the people in her neighbourhood and she explains their faults and that "it's hard to believe that they are children of God", which is in itself adequate food for thought.
