The Como Mamas are Ester Mae Wilbourn, Della Daniels, and Angela Taylor, three lifelong Gospel singers from the small town of Como on the edge of the Delta in North Mississippi.
A new song and a Mother’s Day prayer from Mississippi gospel trio the Como Mamas.
Mom was there all the time!
When you were whining,
When you were upset.
At night, when you couldn’t sleep,
She’d come in and pray with you.
She’d come in and maybe read you a word.
She’d come in and sing you a song.
