Right now, I am listening to an interview of Mahalia Jackson, the "Queen of Gospel," and how she had a heart attack on stage and kept on singing. The recording is part of a 2019 Recordings at Risk project at Tulane University that is now accessible to all. If your organization has an "at-risk" collection in need of digitizing, Recordings at Risk is currently accepting applications. Check out last week's webinar, learn how to apply, AND sign-up for the October 26 applicant Q&A. Excuse me as I return to Ms. Jackson's singing "His Eye is on the Sparrow" at a 1971 press conference in Japan.
