Once upon a time . . .
There was a singing Cinderella?
Yes, with a voice as flavorful as licorice.
There was also a Crooked Foster Mother and two evil sisters. A Queen Mother Rhythm and a Prince of Music.
And while there's no glass slipper to leave behind at the Great Gospel Convention, there is an enchanted melody for the Prince to search for . . . and to find.
Award-winning author and poet Joyce Carol Thomas and Caldecott Medal-winning artist David Diaz have infused the classic Cinderella tale with a soulful twist.
