More About Skeeter:

He has the capability of earning a living by making music for any audience – black or white. He also makes each show an emotional experience for the audience, as it is for him. This solid, block-like, blind man, has a powerful, flexible, southern drenched voice that comes from deep down in his gut. He has been deeply affected by his church and regularly gets off his piano stool mid-show – ministering from the stage – taking the audience to church with him.
