This Little Light of Mine … I’m Gonna Let It Shine

I was in the Booksellers bookstore in Grass Valley recently and one of the clerks pointed at my pants and asked “What’s that?” I looked down and saw that the little flashlight attached to my keychain inside my pocket had accidentally switched on and was shining a light right through my pants. Without hesitation, I answered, “This little light of mine … I’m gonna let it shine!”

Which of course made me think of this wonderful opening scene — one of my all-time favorites — from the Tina Turner biopic, “What’s Love Got to Do With it?”

    That little girl has an amazing voice, and portrays a religious zeal apparently lost on the choir mistress.

    Thanks for the clip.

    The other clips, showing the brutality of Ike Turner, were just too awful to watch.

    I agree with you totally about Ike. I had the same reaction.
