Oleta’s acceptance speech at her American Jazz Walk of Fame medallion induction - June 1, 2019. At American Jazz Museum, 18th & Vine, Kansas City, MO
———————————-
“A special thanks to Congressman Cleaver and the American Jazz Walk of Fame - This is a wonderful surprise for me this year. These are the sort of things I never expect and it’s such a wonderful bonus.

The first gift that was given to me was one of the greatest, and I am ever thankful to God for the gift of being able to share [my] music.

[I’m] so thankful that Kansas City made me their very own - from 1975 until now- I have never left this city. I still live here! It just feels good - because there’s nobody like Kansas City people. You are inside my heart. Anything I have experienced all over the world - I mean, I could name places like the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, to places all over Europe and the world, rival any of those times we had down at the Signboard.

You know what I’m sayin’? Baby please.

We have so many fond memories and I love you all so much. I can’t thank you enough. This is such a great honor, this will stay close to my heart, thank you very, very much.

Oh! And thank you to my husband [John Cushon]. [Kansas City] THAT was a great gift you gave me and that was my
husband, [he’s] from K.C.K!

AND a very big thank you to my manager [Chevy Nash], who came here for this wonderful time. She keeps me working and tells me I’m not going to retire.

God bless you all.”
