Twelve Days of Christmas, Day 8: Roy Webb
Thomas Marshall, Vice-President to Woodrow Wilson, is perhaps best known for his summary of the job. He said: “Once upon a time there were two brothers. One went to sea. The other became Vice President. Neither was ever heard from again.”
All too often, aspiring Southern Gospel soloists bring that saying to mind. While it’s hard for a vocalist–even a good one–to get going in this group-driven genre, it’s even harder for a pianist.
This year, Roy Webb started his attempt at that difficult task. My Christmas wish for him is that he would get the publicity and attention he needs to succeed.
