Dear Blind Willie Johnson Backers,

Your support is greatly appreciated. I want to thank you all for contributing to the campaign. As much or more than the money, the support of this project, the moral support, means a lot. We've got just four days to reach our goal and we're getting closer and closer to getting this project into the studio.

We are 62% of the way there with 4 days to go. I believe we can do this. There many many folks sitting on the sidelines that we need to bring on-board in these last few days.  I'd like to humbly ask one more time that if any of you were inclined to do so, we could use your help in the final stretch to use your social media reach to spread the word. I'm looking forward to the day when I can send you new Blind Willie Johnson songs as recorded by the talented artist involved in this special project.

 If possible, please also consider increasing you pledge or bringing in some friends to match your pledge.

My gratitude and best wishes,

Jeff
