Merry Christmas, Everybody!!! Welcome back to the countdown.
Beautiful winter holiday scene found on Pinterest (original source unknown).
This woman, hailed as the Matriarch of R&B, had her roots in gospel before branching out into blues, jazz, soul and rock & roll. She was one of the pillars of Chess Records in the 1950’s & 1960’s and is best known by her signature song “At Last”. It took almost her whole lifetime for her to be recognized for her impeccable voice, but there is no mistaking her talent once you hear her sing the first note of any of her songs. And there is not a better one to celebrate the meaning of Christmas Day than this one.
Etta James: “Joy To The World” (1998).
And for the new year, my hope and wish is the same: peace in the new year. Here’s to 2019!!!
Michael McDonald, Amy Grant, Vince Gill & Chet Atkins: “Let There Be Peace On Earth” (1993-Christmas with Vince Gill in Tulsa, OK).
