Fun facts - Q&A with Vic Gerami of WeHo Times & Oleta (circa Sept. 2017)
Q - You celebrated your 45th year in the music industry by releasing a new collection of classic songs entitled Third Set this year. How have the changes in the music industry affected you?
A - Not as many people buy full CDs anymore. Also, because of the digital age, the world is inundated with music, so it’s harder for one person to “stand out”. People don’t have to leave home for entertainment anymore because they can see it on cable or the internet. It’s a blessing and a curse.

Fun facts - Q&A with Vic Gerami of WeHo Times & Oleta (circa Sept. 2017) -
Q -
Modesty aside, how would you describe yourself?
A -
I’m a little fish in a big pond, but bright enough to sometimes get noticed. I’m gifted with a voice that is far bigger than I am. I’m an African American Christian woman/ wife/musician/composer/producer. I have no formal degrees except the honorary [doctorate] for which I was awarded. I’m the recipient of four Grammy Nominations, and most recently the Black Music Honors Legends Award. I have recorded nine CDs, not counting the works that I have done on other compilations. I’ve performed all over the USA, throughout Europe, Scandinavia, South Africa, South America, The Caribbean Islands, Japan, Indonesia and a few places I’ve forgotten.

A great way to end the year!
A sweet surprise after being away on tour. There was a box addressed to me from the National Museum of African American Music in Nashville. Ahhhhh! It’s here! This is the Rhapsody & Rhythm Award presented to me in August from the 2017 Black Music Honors, entitled, “Traveling through Time and Music.” It includes several scenes of instruments and musicians signifying the 50-plus genres of African American Music spanning over 400 years of American culture. The accompanying letter went on to say, “the sculpture, designed by Jamaal B. Sheats, exemplifies the mission of NMAAM- to celebrate, preserve, and educate the world about the contributions that African Americans make to American music.”
My sincerest heartfelt thanks to NMAAM and Central City Productions for this prestigious award.#nmaam #centralcityproductions #blackmusichonors #jamaalbsheets #legend
