#WisdomWednesday: Missing Dad

Hello everyone,

In November 2017 I lost my father. A thought and idea that no “Daddy’s girl” ever could believe would be a reality. Tears are never far from my eyes when I recall the childhood memories, parties, music, concerts, lessons, lectures and laughter. My father was not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but, supportive of his family, loyal to his friends and down for his children.

I share this quote, as it captures the stage I am presently in…

To Lose someone you love_alter your heart forever.jpg

As I began to see my father age and knew that the end was too close for comfort, I wrote a song entitled ‘Superman’ as a tribute of love.

Take a moment today to tell someone that you love them and appreciate the relationship that you share. Life is precious and very, very short.

Ciao!

Mahalia Jackson: Happy Birthday to the Queen of Gospel—Born October 26, 1911

“Without a song, each day would be a century"—Mahalia Jackson

Hello everyone,

Join me in celebrating the life of Mahalia Jackson: Singer, Television Personality, Civil Rights Activist (1911–1972)

Ms. Jackson is one of my heroes with a career spanning over 6 decades and 30 albums to her credit.  It is amazing to see how powerfully this woman of song was able to influence the world on Television, in the Civil Rights Movement and in our communities.
