Black History month may be over, but black history is American history and never really stops. I regret not getting up more posts last month, but I don’t plan to stop just because February is over. Georgia has suffered a tremendous loss, with the death of Antoine Hodge.
Antoine Hodge was a highly acclaimed opera singer and native of Georgia. Hodge was a rising star in the opera world who performed leading roles at the Atlanta Opera, On Site Opera, Central City Opera, Opera Colorado, Regina Opera Company, Ash Lawn Opera, Colorado Springs Philharmonic, and Winter Opera St Louis, among many others. He has succumbed to a two month battle with COVID-19. He was 38-years-old.
I’ll let his voice speak for itself, as those of us in Georgia, and people around the world grieve. The video is blurry, but the voice is incredible. What a loss to the world. He comes in at the two minute mark. You won’t regret it.
