Tamia and Deborah Cox lift us up with "Count On Me"

(March 28, 2020) During this exceptional period in which we are living, there are more than a few moments of grace, from neighbors watching out for neighbors, to healthcare providers living their oaths and more, to incredible stories like the Italian priest who perished after selflessly giving his respirator to another patient.

And more than once in awhile, grace is captured in music. So many artists have taken their quarantined time to encourage and lift up their friends and fans. Tonight a new video has really captured us: Singers Tamia and Deborah Cox, two of the greatest voices of their generation, have remotely (from their houses) teamed with pianist Shep Crawford to provide an inspired cover of the Whitney Houston / CeCe Winans classic, “Count On Me.” And it is amazing.

This is a stunning impromptu recording that hits all the right notes, musically and emotionally. Most of all, it is a reminder that at times like this, we are all one family. Check it out below, and then pass it on to someone else who needs to hear it.
