We really enjoyed the Got The Music In Me showcase. The featured documentary and shorts gave us a glimpse of the birth of Kansas City jazz, the life of 1950s soul singer Jesse Belvin and the roots of blues passing from one generation to the next. It also made us want to know more about Jesse Belvin who died with his wife in a head-on collision at Hope, Ark. They had just performed in Little Rock or rather tried to perform as the first concert played before an integrated audience was disrupted by violence and racism.
