Back in the day, when I was a younger and more idealistic man, I happened to be installed as the pastor in a small church located in the “LA Strip,” which included the Los Angeles /Long Beach harbor-area community of Harbor City. When I took over the church, it was primarily populated by a faith-filled group of African-American Believers.
One Sunday evening, I was given the opportunity to host a young singer, who went by the name of Cindy Hewlett. As I was always eager to “be a blessing to others,” (Ironic, isn’t it?) I accepted the invitation and scheduled the unknown Ms. Hewlett to perform on a Sunday evening.
It wasn’t until after she had ministered in song that I recognized her professional identity, as follows:
Ms. Hewlett was a sweet and unassuming songstress, whose voice easily surpassed her professional moniker “Birdsong” and I consider it a special moment to have met her personally and to have enjoyed her singing talent.
