Big Mama and Me
Music is in my life because of my grandmother. I remember as a child listening to Inez Andrews, Albertina Walker, Mahalia Jackson, The Soul Stirrers, Troy Ramey, Rev. James Cleveland, The Barrett Sisters, Mildred Clark. I guess you can say I have an old soul. My grandmother made sure that I was active in the church choirs and she encouraged me in all I do.
My grandma is more than just my grandma; she's a mother, she's a teacher, a disciplinarian, a martyr, and a hero. I love my grandmother. I love her home cooked meals, her stories of life. I've even seen my grandmother shed a few tears, but the Queen is tough!!! I wouldn't have made it without God putting her in my life. I love my Big Mama.
