This video features my dear friend, who was one of the finest Jazz/R&B vocalists I've ever had the opportunity to work with, Miss Theresa Hightower. She is no longer with us, but for all of you who knew her, and or performed with her, may this video bring back many fond memories.
Also watch for the surprise cameo of Theresa kibitzing with Mr. Johnny Knapp, who is also not with us any longer. Both he and Theresa will never be forgotten, they will be talked about in Atlanta music circles for many, many, years to come! Please enjoy this musical treat with:
