Music Motivation: Hampton Alumni Edition

It was at this institution where my gift of music was nurtured and brought alive. Often times I wondered how I was going to pass some of my music classes bc of my hearing impairment (in which I did, at the top of my class too). I was always perplexed at how some of my fellow classmates failed and changed majors when I was the one that couldn’t hear. Never have I complained bc of my hearing loss and never will I start. I’ll just work harder so I can hear what the world hears everyday. And I do believe God will heal me too. 🙂 💜

*When I stepped out this window on the 6th floor, I said ‘Lord don’t let me die on the ledge like this’*. LOL!

    That good, old “Home by the Sea”… Being a hearing impaired MUSIC major (especially in that wonderful HU program) is every bit of a testament to your work ethic…

    And speaking of music, I just snuck on and off stage in your town for a show in Harlem last night.

        You know what, Jerri? You’re exactly right; I should have said something sooner. BUT how’s this for advance notice? I have another Harlem show 8-9 on December 18 at Shrine on Powell and 134th.

        My bad because it would have been great to see you Thursday too… next time though. Are you going to HUHC ’14?
