Transcript: Measha Gosman | Oct 19, 1997

The opening slate is a close-up of a trumpet, with a musical score in the
background. The trumpet dives into the score. A violin and a French horn dive into
the score. The title caption logo appears and reads "tvoArts," with the first part
in low-case black type and the second in neo-Gothic red script.
(Classical music plays)
The screen fades to black.

A female singer in a black dress appears on a stage with an open grand piano behind
her, and hums an opening scale. A caption reads "Measha Gosman, University of
Toronto, Faculty of Music... "Sometimes I feel like a Motherless Child"... Traditional."

Measha says [humming]

Modulating her voice and using its full range of scale and notes,
Measha sings and says "SOMETIMES I FEEL
LIKE A MOTHERLESS CHILD
SOMETIMES I FEEL...
LIKE A MOTHERLESS CHILD
SOMETIMES I FEEL...
LIKE A MOTHERLESS CHILD
