Listening Post: Labelle–"Dear, Rosa"

New Labelle_20080828_163316_800x575

I'm excited to see Labelle on Thursday night at the Beacon.  So, I figured it'd be a great idea to share with you some a track from their new album, "Back to Now". 

I just really love this song, the group's tribute to Civil Rights pioneer Rosa Parks.
