Let me be the first to say that if you were not at Solomon's Porch last
night for the debut of Angela Watson and the Nu Jazz Band, then you
blew it. They were nothing short of amazing. This was one of those
transcendent moments where you could feel that energy in the room letting you
know something big was happening. Angela, I was so proud of you and
the band and like highpoint of the evening was saying, I know your change
is gon' come!

- George Oliver


would like to echo that sentiment. I just want to say to you Angela that you moved me and I was honored to be in the presence of such a talented soul. I saw God in you Angela and I feel privileged to have been able to witness your enormous talent so up close and personally. And if I can, I will always be front and center for you . I have tears in my eyes right now as I think of your rendition of Strange Fruit and A Change Gon' Come. Thank you for that. I better hurry up and get on BROADWAY before you get out there and take my gig! LOL. I love you.
