Summary: 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.

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 as an evangelist--sharing the Gospel with those in need of spiritual comfort.
