Dorothy Love Coates (January 30, 1928 – April 9, 2002) was an American gospel singer.
This song Mrs. Coates wrote from the bible story of the Samarian woman who met Jesus at the well. Mrs. Coates is playing the piano and her daughter Carletta Coates-Criss is playing the tambarines. This song has been requested and I thought it would be great tribute to Mrs. Coates and to honor the requests of those who love this song. Strange Man
This is a song that the Mississippi Mass Choir claimed calling it (They Got the Word), but this is the original witten by the one and only Dorothy Love Coates.
