Tune of the Day: His Eye is on the Sparrow
Gospel hymn tune
This Gospel hymn tune, written in 1905 by composer Charles H. Gabriel, is a staple of African-American worship services. The song is sometimes associated with actress-singer Ethel Waters, who used the title for her autobiography.
Whitney Houston recorded a version of “His Eye is on the Sparrow” for the soundtrack of the 2012 musical film Sparkle.
