This is a vignette, a bit of musical history.
The time, 1981, the place, the apartment we shared
in Beverly Hills.
Two gifted children, brother and sister, eighteen
years apart, yet musically symbiotic. It was wonderful
for me to hear them singing together, Maria harmonizing
and Bryan singing and playing into an old cassette
recorder in the living room.
Also here is Maria jolting us with her great
Gospel version of “Sweet Dr. Jesus” sung live
in our church with “Now I’m Shining” as well.
