Ethel Waters - Born in Chester ,Pa. -- What a gal! What is it about this music that gets right to me? It's the power of the men and women making it and changing the world by their brilliance and bravery. The racial issues don't simmer in the background, they rise to the top and confont us and move us, and empower us to be bigger then the times in which we live. This women, her band, the clubs that booked them, the audience, all moved in a current that was against the times. My hat off to you all, great people, I honor you.
