It is with great sadness and grief that we make this announcement: GROUNDATION percussionist Mingo Lewis Jr. will NOT be on tour with the group March 13-25 for the Brazilian, Chilean, and Argentina shows; just a few days ago Mingo’s Mom Carolyn Lewis passed away after battling cancer. In addition Jazz guitarist Will Bernard will also NOT be on tour with GROUNDATION because HIS Mom is in hospital in California not doing well. Let this be a reminder to tell your Mom that you love her…give her a GREAT BIG HUG for Mingo in remembrance of his Mom, and for Will Bernard so that his Mom can find the strength and energy to come back to full-health. Blessings of love and protection to all!
