Farewell Odetta

Odetta passed away yesterday.
There is one more sweet voice up there in Heaven to welcome those who get there.
Odetta was slated to sing at Obama's inauguration on January 20, 2009. It would have been amazing to see "The Voice of the Civil Rights Movement" perform at the ceremony. Ironic that she passed one day after the 53rd anniversary of Rosa Parks not giving her seat up on the bus - two great women who stood up for what they believed in.
We could use more ladies like this!
Odetta, you will be missed by many.
