Happy Birthday, Ysaye Barnwell!

Saturday, February 28, 2015

ysayeDon’t you love the song that starts and ends Eenie Meanie? When I added that to the show in 2006, everything gelled in a way it hadn’t before. The song is “Wanting Memories” by Dr. Ysaye M. Barnwell formerly of Sweet Honey in the Rock and today is her birthday!  Dr. Barnwell has generously given me permission to use Wanting Memories in Eenie Meanie and I am so very grateful. The show would not be the same without it.

“I know a please, a thank-you and a smile will take me far.
I know that I am you and you are me and we are one.
I know that who I am is numbered in each grain of sand,
I know that I’ve been blessed again and over again.”

Thanks again, Dr. Barnwell. Your song is blessing the audiences in Louisville again and over again. Happy Birthday!

ONLY 2 more performances! TONIGHT at 7:30 pm & TOMORROW at 2:30 pm!  Come on out!
