A favourite piece of video for a Sunday

I've already moodled about how I love Alice Walker's writing... but I somehow missed sharing this little video clip from The Color Purple. 25 years ago, my castmates and I sang "Maybe God is Tryin' to Tell You Somethin'" in our Up With People show, and it was one of my many favourite moments -- such a lively piece with such a great message, and so much fun to sing and clap while the dancers brought it to life. Francis or Lisa's lead vocals never failed to give me goosebumps!

If you've never seen The Color Purple, I'd highly recommend it. In this scene, Shug Avery and her preacher daddy share a wonderful reconciliation. It also softens Albert's heart... Enjoy!
