This is a very low quality recording of sister Louise, a resident of skid row, singing, “Our God is Real.”
Though the recording quality is very low and the song itself is cut off, there is no denying the heart and talent in her voice. I am trying to work out a way to track a few songs from her as soon as possible.
In time I would like to start a project where we go down to skid row and track some of the many artists who call the street home. We would like to bring attention to the problem, and a voice and a face that can not be denied.
I will be keeping you up to date on the project, but until then, check out the Jonah Project and try and get involved with the great work they are doing in Skid Row, Los Angeles.
