Here's a medley that couldn't be happier. It includes a swinging classic ("Forget your troubles and just get happy...") and a gospel standard ("Oh happy day...when all my sins were washed away..."). Put the two together and it's a recipe for a smile. The lyrics make it appropriate for all age groups, and the songs are ideal for any concert.
