Freedom - R.I.P Richie Havens

th 11
To mark the passing of legendary protest singer Richie Havens.  I share his performance of "Freedom" in memory of his protest against the Iraq War. You may recall the song from Havens’ performance at Woodstock, where he was the first act to take the stage, and did so quite dramatically. After a nearly 50-year career, Havens died Monday at age 72 in his New Jersey home after a sudden heart attack. Rest In Peace my brother! And that’s my Thought Provoking Perspective…
