Singing in the Rain

Yesterday, as I was taking a photograph of the redbud tree, which is lovely enough, in and of itself, I heard a female voice, singing a gospel song, coming down the street AND she walked right into my picture AND she was carrying a perfect purple umbrella AND her voice was beautiful AND my camera was ready. After I finished taking her picture, I gave her a big round of applause from across the street. She was surprised that anyone was listening.

I have just spent an inordinate amount of time looking for an audio clip of an acapella gospel singer to go with this photo. No luck. You'll just have to sing to yourself, while you look.

Association: I remember as a ten year old, seeing "Singing in the Rain" with Donald O'Conner and Gene Kelly at Radio City Music Hall, in New York City. A big treat for a little girl from the midwest. My mother loved movie musicals, especially the operettas. We saw "The Student Prince" at least five times.
