I had the privilege of working with Joe Carter in the Minneapolis Public Schools. I am a violinist in the Minnesota Sinfonia and was able to see and hear first-hand how Joe would relate to so many young school children through word and song. Joe performed at dozens of schools for several years and always left an unforgettable impression. Joe would sing several spirituals and tell stories to the students. When he spoke to the audience, he immediately drew them in with the richness of his voice. What a captivating personality! He often encouraged students to sing with him on the songs that they knew. His voice was so beautiful. What life he brought to each of those performances. With every song, every story, he gave each of us an amazing gift.
