My uncle Robert may you continue to rest in peace. I miss you dearly. You were my entertainment mentor. However more than that you were my uncle whom I spent so much time with. Love and miss you!!

I am excited to see this. My late husband William Grandvil Carter (1940-1993) was the piano accompanist and 5th singing voice when Bob McFerrin Sr. toured Europe as the California Jubilee Singers from 1964-1965. That was the turning point in Bill's career. He had proved himself as a musician and returned to UCLA to earn his bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees after having walked out on a nearly complete degree in chemistry the previous year. I had the great honor of meeting Bob McFerrin in St. Louis during the summer of 1964, thanks to our friendship with another of the Jubilee Singers, Thomas "Tinkle" Woodson. While we were sitting in the bonus room of Tom's sister's home conversing with Robert and Tom, I felt Bill's presence in that room. I also had a mini-coaching lesson talking with Bob about interpreting spirituals, and knew instantly from the first phrase he sang to me what a great artist he was, and what an inspiration he had been to my husband, My husband had passed those stylings on to me, and we performed them together many times.
