My heart weighs heavy with the news that the world has lost one of it's most beautiful, deep and compassionate voices and soldiers for peace. When Rosa Parks was asked what her favorite song was, she replied "Anything by Odetta."

Anything she sang couldn't help but pierce your heart with her humanity. I especially loved her singing of Dylan... and any spiritual she sang took you right to the bosom of Angel Oak. It was my honor and privilege to have met her, and sat beside her in conversation.
God bless your beautiful soul.
