The sweet voice is a balm to the soreness of one’s heart. A lovely voice used to uplift spiritually is a great treasure. Will someone ask the dear lady to do the quote of Abdu’l-Baha….”Ay Talibeh Malakut” in a style similar to that done by the chorus in Austria in 1980. The cassette tape was called “The Call of the Beloved” I believe the owner of this sweet voice will soar to new heights with this powerful gem. Thank you.
