Hope to see you at one of these and don't forget, tell/bring a friend. I'm loving meeting all of you after the show, so come up and say hi!
You graced us with your inimitable style and your wonderfully generous spirit. You had nothing but kindness and words of wisdom and encouragement for all that crossed your path.
You inspired multiple generations.. The first book I remember my grandmother, an aspiring writer, talk about with adulation and fervor is I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. You will be adored, remembered, spoken of and missed for ages to come Ms. Angelou.
My mother said to me many times as a little girl, Music can change the world. Today I'm going to amend that to say Art can change the world.. and make it a better a place.
Thank you Mom, Grandmom, Ms. Maya..
Thank you for reading.
