A Tour Diary: 14 Ladies, 9 cities, 1 choir and 1 Body

by Jaime Lowe

Greetings from the road. I’m writing this post in the car on our way to Jacksonville, Florida. The sun is shining, it’s hot, and tour rules.

So far, the Assembly of Light Women’s Choir and The Body have dominated audiences in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and Charlotte.  


Let’s rewind a bit so I can show you some pictures.
