KODIAK — Norman Joel Greenbaum is an American singer-songwriter born on November 20, 1942, in Massachusetts. His interest in music was sparked by southern blues music and the folk music that was popular in the late 1950s and early 1960s. He is best known for writing and performing the 1969 song "Spirit in the Sky.” The song, with its combination of 'heavy' guitar, hand-clapping, and spiritual lyrics, sold two million copies and has been used in many films, advertisements, and television shows. The song “Spirit in the Sky” is inspirational – it reminds me of people I know and love that have gone to heaven.
