I didn't get invited for the interview, however, I will call in to share my thoughts about the Philly Mama Diva. Evelyn was the first honored in my production of Songstresses Celebrating Sisterhood six years ago. She was too ill at the time to attend, however her nephew accepted her award. We ended up going to her home and just chating with her and it was an historical visit. She shared a great deal of information. I truly miss her. I used to go see her at the cafe on 2nd and South all the time. Her songs were endless.

Evelyn was a joy and delight to all who hear her.

It's been a long time, but you always remember the Good People in life and Evelyn was one of those people.

All the best,
Diva JC
