A REQUIEM FOR CHARLESTON

As a voice in the performing arts, let me personally offer my most sincere sympathy in the wake of the horrific tragedy in Charleston, SC.  It was through the founder of the Colour of Music Festival Lee Pringle that I was introduced to the beauty, culture and wonderful people of this charming city.

It is my hope and prayer that justice be served in the murders of nine people at Historic Emanuel A.M.E. Church, which included State Senator and the church’s pastor Clementa Pinckney, 41. Pinckney was also a distinguished brother of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.

Nine people, including the pastor of Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC -Senator Clementa Pinckney was killed by a gunman during bible study.
