As BLACK MUSIC MONTH continues, today I honor a very close & personal friend!!! A friend so close that we attended her wedding in New York, and we attended Bible College together, and it was then that she gave me a cassette of her very first song. It was so good that the next morning I played it on the WINSTON CHANEY MORNING SHOW!! From that point, her career has taken off and the rest is history.
