Odetta, 1930-2008

Odetta was one of those people who seemed immortal. It's sad that she won't be alive to attend the Inauguration. She was very excited to see Obama's election, though, & that is some consolation. Here Odetta's page on the Folk Music Archives Organization website. Maya Angelou said it best: "Thank you Odetta, for continuing to define and enlighten our load."
