'What The World Needs Now' Live Performance From Yolanda Adams

Yolanda Adams performs a soul-filled rendition of ‘What The World Needs Now’ during the 2020 A Capitol Fourth concert.


This 1965 song was composed by legendary musician Burt Bacharach and made popular by Jackie DeShannon. After its release, the song quickly shot to the top of the music charts.

Now, it’s a classic tune that has truly stood the test of time.

“Lord, we don't need another mountain,
There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb
There are oceans and rivers enough to cross,
Enough to last till the end of time.”

Yolanda Adams has been staple in gospel music for decades. With hits such as ‘Open My Heart’ and ‘Never Give Give,’ her powerful voice has truly stood the test of time. Today, she is lending her voice to one of the most iconic tunes of all time with ‘What The World Needs Now.’

“What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No not just for some but for everyone.”

As our globe grapples with COVID-19 and fights against racial injustice, it is so important to remember love and kindness. Together, we can face any obstacle as we turn to God and unite as one under His love.

As you listen to these words remember to trust in God and let His light shine through you.

Colossians 3:12 “Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.”
