Songs I heard my mother sing
Shirley Brooks Sydnor is completly dedicted to gospel music. Whether it is the performance, the instruction, the history, the influence, or the preservation of gospel song. Shirley is fully committed to this music that has shaped her life and she is driven by the believe that it can shape the lives to others.[...]
from the Booklet - Ken Romanowski

I'm dedicted to blues and gospel music for over 25 years. In 1977 I founded the Mojo Blues Band, but I also love to perform as a solist. With this CD one of my musical dreams came true.
Thank you, Shirley
(Erik)

I would like to dedicate this CD to Mother Mamie Brooks and Missionary Annie Mason whose songs laid the foundation, and to Bill Wilson at the University of Maryland. Special thanks also to my children: Marina, Dana, Hagood jr. and Cheryl (Shirley)
