Musical Tributes to Rosa Parks
Gerri Allen's "Life Of A Song" includes “In Appreciation: a Celebration Song”, which is dedicated to Rosa Parks.
Jessica Williams has a tune entitled "For Rosa Parks" (not sure if it appears on any of her albums)
[and I have the uneasy feeling I'm forgetting something obvious...]
There's a gospel album from 1995, "A Tribute to Rosa Parks"
The Neville Brothers "Sister Rosa", from their Yellow Moon album
(Outkast used Mrs. Parks' name in a song that was not a tribute, and was sued by her.)

Each Day Is A Gift.
I'm not gonna challenge your memory, Steve.
My favorite among those cited would be Sister Rosa from the Neville Brothers. The love for her was palpable. Patti and I heard them perform that one in-person, too. Very nice tribute.

Thanks Steve...I was thinking to do a little token of thanks to Rosa Parks on the weekly broadcast. I like the Neville's song a lot, and love the Geri Allen CD.
