Abbey Lincoln Aminata Moseka R.I.P.

Aminata Moseka Abbey Lincoln

Abbey and Joan, Montreux 1992

Life is good. Death is Graduation.

Yesterday, a friend crossed over, leaving open a vast chasm of emotion. In 80 years, Aminata Moseka a/k/a Abbey Lincoln (August 6, 1930-August 15, 2010) left a legacy of music that draws tears with every note. Her lyrics touch my heart in places I didn’t know existed. She was a light, a beacon in my life, guiding me when she didn’t even know it.

Listen to her in these videos and know that a true artist has left the planet
