RT You must listen to this truly breathtaking seamless melting of traditional#Gospel&#classical#Mozart featuring @cissycrutcherCissy is the baby sister of one of my childhood friends and daugther of my Jr High music teacher. She brings to the table her own tastes which include some smooth, some classical, and some cool, the herbs and spices tossed into the stew of her very unique smooth blend. You will be spellbound as you marinate on her melodious lyrics.
