Rapping About a World at Risk

Odetta Crosses Over

Odetta Holmes
12/31/30-12/2/08

We extend our sympathies to Odetta’s family
and friends on the loss of this great woman.

We mourn the death of one of America’s great folk singers,
troubadour, artist and activist.

Odetta dedicated her life and art to serve the dispossessed
and those whose voices and stories are seldom heard and often ignored.

She will be missed, but her righteous life
and beautiful art will serve as an example for all who follow.

Odetta and her spirit will live on in our hearts and thoughts for evermore.

She is at peace and may God welcome her presence
adding her angelic voice to the eternal divine celestial chorus.

Peace and Prayers
