Betty Ford Funeral In Grand Rapids Is A Real Celebration Of Her Life!
Isn’t it just like Betty Ford to choose a “spiritual” to start off her funeral here in Grand Rapids. Back in the day before it was politically incorrect to use the term “negro” it was referred to as a “Negro spiritual”. Spirituals are raw, honest, bluesy, transparent, beautiful and real. Just like Betty Ford! It’s no wonder she chose Done Made My Vow! It was sung, I believe by someone in the Marine Corps. Didn’t catch his name. Sorry. The video I posted is an arrangement of Done Made My Vow however; it pales in comparison to the stunning arrangement done acapella by a choir in Grand Rapids. Once again GR makes us proud!!! ps And then Betty chose one of my all time favorite songs, Let There Be Peace On Earth. At least I get to play it at Christmas time on the radio.
