    From a time and place most can't even imagine... The late 60's>early 70's. Baltimore. A talent show. Morgan State College. In some hall, building, venue, etc. . Sorry, the haze has never lifted. Clowns were shouting to have the performer sing louder. "Little Neicy" was on her way to us. Little did they, or I, know then. Listen with your heart. You will hear an angel speak.

    Don't forget about It's Gonna Take a Miracle, or Too Much Too Little Too Late... Didn't realize she cut a version of That's What Friends Are For on top of it all...
