Della reminds us to tell the Lord, I Love you…. Della Reese, an awesome actress and singer. This is a simple song but oh so powerful. We should never be so busy to tell God, family and friends how much we love them. Born Deloreese Patricia on July 6, 1931, the young Reese began singing in the Baptist church choir in her hometown of Detroit at age 6. Over the decades, Della was nominated for both Emmy and a Grammy and receiving a star on the Hollywood walk of Fame. Reese is also an ordained minister in the Universal Foundation for Better Living, an association of churches she helped found in the early 80’s.
