In the words of Albertina Walker, I'm still here!

Some of my friends and followers have asked me about my lack of posts because it's been nearly a year since my last post. I'm still around, I just haven't had time for updating the blog. I hope to change that in these next few weeks with some new posts. Golden Era Gospel will forever be one of my interests. Here's to new material coming in the next few weeks!

Seeking an easy New Year's Resolution for 2013? Help the Barrett Sisters release their new documentary!

For over 60 years, the Barrett Sisters have lifted their sweet voices to the delight of fans worldwide. Despite being so accomplished, the Barrett Sisters have one dream that has yet to be realized, and that dream is the release of The Sweet Sisters of Zion: Delois Barrett Campbell and the Barrett Sisters. Nearly all of the filming of the documentary was completed before the passing of Delois Barrett Campbell in August 2011. While filming is complete, there are still expenses mounting. Like many other groups and singers of the Golden Era, the Barrett Sisters were often not compensated as they deserved for their performances, and they did not experience financially profitable music careers. So, the Barrett Sisters are asking for financial assistance in helping to defray the costs of filming, packaging, promoting and distributing the movie, and hosting a premiere screening in February 2013.

Help preserve and promote gospel music history by donating to make release of The Sweet Sisters of Zion: Delois Barrett Campbell and the Barrett Sisters  a reality.
