Midnight Express featuring Sabrina Johnston - Freedom

Originally released in 1998, this song is still highly underrated. It is one of many Gospel/House tracks Sabrina Johnston has appeared on. It's fitting that this one is seeing an update as some of her others including "What Hope Have I" and "Peace (In The Valley)" recently received new mixes.

In addition to the classic original versions from the '98 release, there are some new mixes by Midnight Express and Jerome Farley. Midnight Express' new mixes are both House-oriented and a bit more uptempo and festive than the earlier ones. Jerome Farley's are much harder and more anthemic. His are more circuit-oriented. The original Basement Boys mix is really soulful and light. It sounds fresh even now.
