Performance at The Wassaic Project August 3, 2013
Pamela Council performed “SWEET GRACE” as part of “The Argonauts” at Wassaic Project Summer Festival.
Bishop Charles Manuel “Sweet Daddy” Grace was James Brown’s childhood idol. Grace was the original charismatic prosperity preacher, and was known for his sharp dandy style which included wearing capes and long red, white, and blue painted fingernails.”Sweet Grace” is a solo strut dedicated to Daddy Grace’s spirit- his fortitude, focus, and ingenuity in the name of a religious body that welcomed all people. This is an apparition of Grace, an homage and a small contribution to a new way of seeing this historical figure and his emulators.
