Her music is good too. An African American girl born in Brookfield in with nine siblings had to have a tough go of it. She made it. Opportunities were limited for her in Kirksville, where her family had moved, and that probably was the impetus for her move to Los Angeles when she was in her early twenties.
She became enmeshed in the local Gospel community and led a mixed race choir for the Sky Pilot Church. Her reach went beyond Los Angeles.

However, many choir members may judge the worth of their participation not only by their contribution to worship, but also by the content and value of rehearsals.
As a result, it is critical that you establish a consistent style of rehearsing. In my church we have tried to run rather intensive rehearsal with little opportunity for conversation. This style has a double benefit: members tend to learn more music in a shorter period of time and to look back at the rehearsal hour with a greater sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Selecting music is in many ways the most creative and rewarding part of leading a choir.
It is also among the most challenging. It's important to know the abilities of your choir and to test and expand those abilities with a range of repertoire.
Overloading your choir with too much difficult music can be just as demoralizing as singing the simplest hymn arrangements week after week. If you have very few men, don't be afraid to use the vast repertoire available in S-A-B format. But be aware that the baritone line moves around a great deal and may be somewhat difficult as a result. Lola bits and pieces. Cargo Cycling. Republic: Cargo Bikes for Kids. Grandprix HMK Beta.
