That’s The Way God Planned It 45 by Billy Preston

That's The Way God Planned It

In many circles Billy Preston is best remembered for his work with the Beatles but he had a very successful career on his own. He placed 18 singles on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Hot 100 Chart, 1969-1982; two of which reached number one.

The first chart song of his career was “That’s The Way God Planned It.” Released during the late summer of 1969, it peaked at number 62 during its six weeks on the charts.

It was a gospel song with a passionate vocal. He used his keyboards to drive the melody along. He was also one of the first musicians to appear on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.
