I don’t know what to call this post

Ever find yourself smiling and crying at the same time? I was doing both those things this morning when I woke up. It’s because I’d been dreaming of my mom, who’s been gone now for almost thirteen years. Of course I don’t remember the dream, but I do remember her face and laughter. I also remember one of her favorite gospel songs playing, so I decided to share it this morning. The song is “It’s Gonna Rain”, and as sung by the Reverend Milton Brunson Thompson Community Choir, it always made me cry because they harmonized so beautifully and it was clear they believed passionately in the essence of what they were singing.

 

 

On another note, I found another choir singing the song and it’s like they made special effort to sound like (with the exception of accents) the Brunson Choir version — even down to the ad-libbing. I believe it’s a foreign (foreign to the U.S.) choir, and I was blown away. Your thoughts?

 

Anyway, pleasantries.
