Music Video I made in Honor of the Historical marker dedication today in Beaumont, Texas December 15, 2010

From the Houston Chronicle:
BEAUMONT, Texas — Texas bluesman and gospel singer "Blind" Willie Johnson is being remembered with a historic marker decades after his death.

A ceremony was planned Wednesday in Beaumont to honor Johnson, who died in 1945, with a Texas Historical Marker.

The Beaumont Enterprise reports a death certificate indicates Johnson, born in 1897 and blinded as a child, was buried in a pauper's cemetery in the Pear Orchard neighborhood of Beaumont.

Supporters of the traveling singer and minister set up the Blind Willie Johnson Memorial Fund to help honor the musician and his recordings from the late 1920s to the early 1930s.
