Many of you already know Melanie DeMore as a founding member of the Grammy-nominated Cultural Heritage Choir, an acappella percussion-driven ensemble, specializing in African American roots folk music.
This singer-songwriter has a remarkable (and very, very, very low) voice - a voice, in the words of Linda Tillery, like warm melted butter - with which she weaves the fibers of African American folk music with soulful ballads, spirituals and her own original music.
This graceful and elegant solo recording contains the songs Melanie sang to her sister Drena while she was passing from this world onto the next. Deep not only in voice, but in emotional and spiritual resonance as well, the collection embodies the sacred on every level.
If you have recently experienced the loss of someone you love, or are preparing to, this very special recording may be the perfect one to speak to you, comfort you, lift you, heal you, and strengthen your spirit.
