Gospel singer Elizabeth King is unstoppable. It's not just that she recently released her first new album in more than four decades at the age of 78. Wait until you hear the whole story.

In this episode, King explains the dramatic way her career started, what she did when she wasn't putting out albums, and she talks about how she musters the strength and power to persevere.

We start the show with a song from her new album, Living In The Last Days, that feels like an appropriate beginning: "A Long Journey."
