One of the blessings that come with being a musician is to be part of really important events in the life of people. That, sometimes, includes the end of it; which means playing at funerals.
Today is the funeral of Carlene McKenzie, our dear member of Cafemnee and Time For My Music who passed away at the beginning of the year. To pay homage to her memory, the women of the group are going to perform ‘Swing Low, Sweet Chariot’ as a band, while I will do a solo rendition of ‘The Old Rugged Cross’.
Last Saturday, my project Time For My Music had an online evening performance, which was livestreamed through my YouTube channel. Among all the talented women who were in the show, we should have had the bright smile and powerful djembe of Carlene McKenzie, but unfortunately, she passed away at the beginning of the year.
