Song of the Day: February 27

February 27: “He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands” a traditional spiritual sung here by one of my heroes, Marian Anderson, whose birthday is today.  Marian was talented, brave, perseverant and resilient. And generous, to wit: when she was 75 years old, she accepted Realand Uddyback’s invitation to come to Westport to watch a play about Marian Anderson’s life performed by 3rd graders. Her presence at Bedford El impacted many of those 3rd graders’ lives forever. LYRICS SPOTIFY
