She found out

Marva Wright died on March 23rd, and thus I'm pre-empting the video that was scheduled for today. Marva was a big lady with a big voice and a big heart, who belted out blues and gospel tunes and gospel-ized pop tunes that, when you heard them, they were just right. I was lucky enough to see her in Houston in the early 90's, when she was just starting out. And man, that voice... she could belt out those blues, yessiree.

Here she's belting out "Change Is Gonna Come". I guess it did, as it does for all of us, eventually.
