for 'Sanctified Blues'


Tell me more...

"Albertina Merci, a talented R&B singer, toured with Ray Charles, James Brown, and Wilson Pickett.. until the fateful night her voice gave out in front of a sold-out crowd. Encouraged by her fans, she offered a little speech in praise of Jesus instead of a song. Her spontaneous words became the seed of "Sanctified Blues," a song that soon captured the hearts of millions and gave Albertina the financial security to follow her true calling-sharing the Gospel with those in need of spiritual comfort.

Sanctified Blues is the story of Albertina's encounter with Maggie Clay, the biracial beauty who is TV's reigning sitcom diva. A sudden mystery surrounding Maggie has the entire country wondering:   Is Maggie having a nervous breakdown, and if so, why? What caused it? And who can save the star from self-destruction?

Sanctified Blues introduces a heroine in the vein of Jessica Fletcher (of Murder, She Wrote) and Precious Ramotswe, head of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Her quiet but determined mission to solve spiritual mysteries and dilemmas will endear Albertina to both secular and Christian readers."
