Prayers and positive thoughts go out to the family of Dr. Bobbie Bailey, one if the founders of The Georgia Music Hall of Fame and a past Inductee herself. Bailey died on July 25, she was 87. 

I had the honor of working with Dr. Bailey, when Dottie Rambo, was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame (2008). Dottie, was killed on her tour bus in a crash on May 11 (2008). Dr. Bailey asked that I accept the honor on her behalf. That year Dottie's granddaughter Destony and myself accepted the honor posthumously for beloved Dottie!  Linda Davis, performed a beautiful rendition of I Will Glory In The Cross, on piano. 

Dr. Bailey personally flew me and my ex into Atlanta, as she didn't want me to drive with my injuries (I was in the same bus crash As Ms Dottie) and arranged first class accommodations of hotels and transportation. 

Thank you Dr Bailey for your love of music and kindness to me. Most of all thank you for making Dottie Rambo, a member of The Georgia Music Hall If Fame! You'll be missed!

Wouldn't it be great to see a museum for the Georgia Music Hall of Fame erected in Atlanta, in Dr Bailey's memory? For years the Hall, had a home in Macon but during the economy collapse it closed. Atlanta seems more suited for such a venue and let's hope it happens one day! 

I do hope the Hall of Fame will expand it's vision enough to find those in the gospel music field from Georgia like Naomi Sego, Dottie Peoples, The Nelons, Rex Nelon and many others.
