It is January of 2019 and I am just hearing of this annointed WOMAN OF GOD! At first glance I thought there was something strange going on with her because of the way she was shaking her hair, and then the spirit of God revealed that, that's his AUTHENTIC ANNOINTING on her! You don't see much of this anymore in church, I am so inspired, she is so electrifying; made me want to get saved all over again and run and not be weary walk and NEVA faint! God bless you mother mosie

On internet you can find photo's from when she was young, playing the piano. 65 of experience and that together with friends collegues. It really sparkles. That is what i thought. And now I read that it is Mosy Burks first album on her 72!Then you realy trust the lord.
