What an honor to be invited to play as part of the 50th birthday celebration for the first lady of New Beginnings Church! Members of this friendly church pulled out all the stops to put on a very elegant party and brunch to honor the Rev. Twanna Henderson.
I started out the morning by playing in the beautifully decorated church lobby, as the guests arrived and made their greetings. I was asked to play classical music for this portion, to give it an especially elegant atmosphere. Then I moved into the auditorium, to play as brunch was being served. Here it was requested that I play a nice mix of classical, jazz, and a few classic love songs.
A beautiful morning, to honor a special person!
