Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Albertina Merci, a talented R&B singer, toured with Ray Charles, James Brown, and Wilson Pickett—until the fateful night her voice gave out in front of a sold-out crowd. Encouraged by her fans, she offered a little speech in praise of Jesus instead of a song. Her spontaneous words became the seed of “Sanctified Blues,” a song that soon captured the hearts of millions and gave Albertina the financial security to follow her true calling as an evangelist—sharing the Gospel with those in need of spiritual comfort.

Sanctified Blues is the story of Albertinas encounter with Maggie Clay, the biracial beauty who is TVs reigning diva. A sudden mystery surrounding Maggie has the entire country wondering: Is Maggie having a nervous breakdown, and if so, why? What caused it? And who can save the star from self-destruction?

Sanctified Blues kicks off a series about a former R&B singer turned full-time minister whos full of spice and advice. When the Lord works in mysterious ways, its up to Pastor Albertina Merci to find out why…

Synopsis:

A talented R&B singer until her voice gives out, Albertina Merci's little speech in praise of Jesus becomes a song that captures the hearts of millions and gives Albertina the financial security to follow her true calling--sharing the Gospel with those in need of spiritual comfort.
