Barbershop a Blessing

by cgindy

I don heard em say Cheatham and Moore they a pillar
They don said that I’m neighborhood figure
When we moved to Illinois and 38th
I don been blessed and safe
I don got a testimony lemme testify
I don heard a lot of brothas say the barber changed they life
Thank you for your sacrifice
Thank you for the lesson
Let em. Know I got the  message
The barbershop a blessing

Last month, we welcomed Nabil Ince to the Harrison Center for a songwriting residency focusing on the Maple Crossing neighborhood. His first musical offering is a lively tune inspired by Cheatham and Moore Barbershop at 38th and Illinois. Enjoy!
