Odetta


Odetta is gone. There was simply no voice like hers. Strong as a tree trunk, sad as murder, as warm and kind as your mother and grandmother combined. So long, Odetta. Thanks for everything you gave this sorry world. We'll keep listening.


Digg!

Hello there,

Thank you for remembering and honoring this remarkable and unforgettable legend.

How sad it is to see the curtain call for these phenomenal icons.

John 14:1-3
"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."

I believe!

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
Lisa
