The things they say:

“Playing in church has really profoundly affected me. Gospel music is one of my first loves and I’ve learned all about singing and performance and how to hold a crowd. You can’t come with any bulls**t when you’re singing in church. Mitty took me under her wing and really coached me about life and things like that.” Acclaimed singer/songwriter Eli ‘paperboy’ Reed on his formative years as an organist and singer at soul legend Mitty Collier’s Chicago, Illinois church.
