The final day of the Waterfront Blues Festival was filled with any number of sounds. Zydeco, R&B, Blues, Soul. From Juke Joint to Your Old Time Gospel Hour courtesy of Linda Hornbuckle. After the show, both Linda and LaRhonda Steele shared a few moments to talk about the power of Gospel Music in their lives, and what Janice brought to each of their musical and personal lives, as well.
