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.
