Sweet Honey in the Rock and I, in the White House!

             OOAK Private Commission for Sweet Honey in the Rock's 30th Anniversary Tour

Look, Mama.  I did it!

My very Capricorn mother would be so proud of this photo.  She always gave me drive and utmost support for my art and creative spirit.  I am my mother's daughter when it comes to my own elation and pride over this most happy occasion, and being a part of a historical moment.

I thank the magnificent ladies of Sweet Honey in the Rock for believing in me and my work, and for carrying it forward in the presence of First Lady Michelle Obama during their groundbreaking White House appearance.  Wow!  I am almost speechless...not quite, but close!!!
