Tired, sweaty and in a hurry. Working on only two hours of sleep because we drove all night to get to Atlanta I was just trying to pick  up tickets for the Heritage Singers 40th anniversary when I stumbled  upon a familiar tune.  The language I couldn’t determine, but I picked up my pace anyway […]
