Hidden Gems: Imperials – “Light At The End Of The Darkness”

This song comes from 1975 and the No Shortage album with Jim Murray, Terry Blackwood, Sherman Andrus, Armond Morales, and Joe Moscheo. I believe this song was written by Larry Gatlin. Terry Blackwood sings lead throughout the song. Even though The Imperials were firmly entrenching themselves at the forefront of the emerging genre of Contemporary Christian Music by this time, this song hearkens back to their Southern Gospel roots and is a classic SG style ballad. This song has a great message of hope for anyone going through a tough time. Terry Blackwood’s lead vocal is great, and the group harmonies are spot on. Sherman Andrus really shows his blending ability as a baritone on this song as well. This is just an all around great song, and I’d love to see someone bring this one back.
