for the 3-5 minutes

I’m on that stage performing;

everyone in the audience

gets to see

the real Joseph. 


Joe liked to sing.  He was slowly revealing his hidden talents, as he begun to share different songs with different people.  Below is just a sampling.  We are still discovering others, as Joseph shared his talents with different people on different occasions.  On some recordings, Joe had also taught himself to play the keyboard.


Just My Imagination (The Temptations)

Joseph sent this recording to his sister, Jasmine, one random winter day.  It was also played at his celebration of life.


He Loves Me (Kirk Franklin)


Though mumbled, this is one of his mom’s favorites as he sings about the Lord.


I Need You Now (Smokie Norful)


Joseph sang this one for his dad.


Good Morning


This recording was sent to his mom (after Joe’s death), from one of Joseph’s friends from work. The first time hearing it was Father’s Day morning, as she shared it with his dad.


Stay With Me (Sam Smith)
