Maya Angelou and LeAnn Rimes Love Each Other Very Much
Do you know why I included the video of the LeAnn Rimes classic, “Blue”? It’s because that’s the way Maya Angelou first gained appreciation for LeAnn. See, Maya heard the song and absolutely loved it, and she believed LeAnn to be an old, soulful black lady before she realized she was a “little white girl.” I guess that little surprise fueled some interest in LeAnn, because when Maya Angelou got a show called The Celebration Table on the Hallmark Channel (which I will definitely watch as long as it doesn’t cut into the hours and hours of Golden Girls reruns), LeAnn was one of the first people she wanted to talk to.
But what could these ladies have to talk about? Let’s let LeAnn tell us:
“We talked about forgiveness, marriage, children, poetry, music, food … and drank great wine together. Her spirit is infectious. Meeting her changed my life. She’s a walking angel and the wisest person I’ve ever met. She invited Eddie, the kids and me back to her home soon for a few days because she wants to cook for us. I’m happy to call her my friend and she calls me her daughter. What an honor.”
