The Story of Barbara 'Bobbie' Grant

Hi, My name is Barbria DeÁnne and I am fundraising to set the record straight on and Honor my Mother. Barbara Grant was the songwriter of He Cares, which was produced by Sam Cooke on his SAR records label and performed by Johnny Taylor and The Soul Stirrers. This song was written as a tribute to her Mom, my Grandmother, Luvenia Grant.

I have started this fundraiser to help me register, market and promote the book that I'm writing detailing My Mother's life, The Story Beyond My Mother's Song, the story of Barbara 'Bobbie' Grant. Barbara Grant never received royalties for this song, therefore not only was my mom taken advantage of, but her mother's tribute was also taken advantage of as was her family.

Please help me right this wrong as I tell the story of this trendsetter who truly paved the way for female songwriters in her day. All donations are truly appreciated.

All additional funds not used toward marketing and promotion will go toward making sure Barbara Grant - Haynes has a proper headstone that displays the genius that was "Bobbie".

Again, All donations are truly appreciated. Thank You.
