BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- After Sept. 15, 1963, the four girls killed in the bombing of Sixteenth Street Baptist Church were suspended in time and memory, never to grow up.
Kevin Turner, director of the UAB Gospel Choir, wanted to give them back their voice. He wrote a song imagining the girls as grown women, singing about what they might have become.
When UAB senior music major Ralph Marion went to bed on Sunday, January 22, 2012 he never imagined having to go through a devastating tornado that literally would rip his family's home from around them. Ralph, a former UAB drum major, parents Ronald and Bethanne, and brother Ryan were able to walk out of the basement of their three-level home miraculously without a scratch. Their home, however, including the cars, furniture, and clothing, didn’t fare as well.
