Mirror Images

In 2009, the SING THE TRUTH Tour a tribute to Nina Simone, opened in Atlanta, Georgia in the National Black Arts Festival. I performed with Dianne Reeves, Liz Wright and Joi Gilliam. During my performance Dianne asked someone to take this shot of my daughter, RéAnna watching from the wings.  In a 2017 special issue of PEOPLE I was struck dumb by the image of Carrie Fisher, as a little girl watching her mother, Debbie Reynolds, perform onstage.  These two images are so similar it still takes my breath away.

    Love the parallel of mothers and daughters. I remember many times you watched your mom from the wings. Makes me smile. Much love!💕

      Definitely brings back memories of childhood moments spent in the same spot, doing the same thing, and feeling so good to be there.
