Today loyal listeners is a very special day for all of us on Winds Of Change, for we have Opera Singer and former student from St. Stanislaus Kostka School, Takesha Meshe Kizart on the show for us today. She talks about her upcoming concert/performance this weekend to benefit the reconstruction of The St Stans Church itself. Father Anthony briefly first discusses the gospel for atonement for our sins, in terms of the Easter Season with a blood/family covenant within the Church and related to Jesus and his resurrection and family. Our thoughts and prayers also go out to Christina and her family due to her Great Aunts passing yesterday. St Katherine of Sienna is discussed first today and more on John Paul the Second's becoming a Saint. After the first break, the conversation turns toward Takesha Meshe Kizart, talking about not only her upcoming concert this Friday night, but also her career as a world renowned opera singer, her life as a student (as a kid) at St Stansislaus Kostka school, her family history, being She is grand-niece of Muddy Waters on her mother’s side and a distant relative of Tina Turner, and history of how she became and got into Opera. She also points out, looking towards the future, providing advice to the students of St Stans that not only has the school impacted her life, but will to the ones currently there now and shares when she was here for her Christmas concert as well. She continues to talk about where she has been all around/over the world being a world known Opera Soprano singer, leading to very wonderful and interesting places and singing in some of the languages from where she's performed, as well as what opera roles made her world famous, as well as describing herself as a singer, performer, and person.
