She flew from the South Carolina coast to the operatic stage. Inspired by Marian and Etta, Ella and Leontyne, and all the songs from all her life ringing off the wooden floors, pews and walls of the church she grew up in in Port Royal. She sings high and sweet, high and strong. She commands every stage she walks out on. Flying to places she's only imagined with Gullah music in her blood. This original is painted in acrylic on board with hand-colored and hand-cut papers and 24k gold leaf.
