I performed at St. Luke's Episcopal School in Baton Rouge, LA last week and was shocked to discover that January was Johnette Downing Month at their school! I couldn't believe it. They had Johnette Downing posters, facts, and photos. The children had been studying my books and music all month! Wow! Was I blown away. The surprise came to them when I told them that January is my birthday month, so they picked the perfect month to celebrate me and my music and books.
Thanks so much to the staff, teachers and students of St. Luke's for selecting me as the author of the month. I was very honored and flattered.
I look forward to seeing you all again next year!
