RIP Edwin

Oh Sad Day. That song brings back some pretty strong memories for me of when I was a high school senior. A very uplifting song. There is something very compelling about gospel music, that's for certain.

Gospel is at the core of Soul and rhythm and blues --- so many of the legendary Motown, Stax, and Atlantic greats got their start in the church, including Sam Cooke, Lou Rawls, Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield, and on and on.
