When the Saints Came Marching In
A team of 13 joined Maryland emergency workers to aid a Katrina-ravaged community

The soulful sounds of Ray Charles’ “Georgia On My Mind” filled a ramshackle, makeshift clinic in West Jefferson, La. Before Hurricane Katrina hit, this building housed an elementary school. Now it’s a walk-in health clinic. An accomplished jazz pianist from New Orleans’ storied French Quarter, now homeless, sang and played on an abandoned upright.

Suddenly the tempo picked up. Patients and volunteers at the site couldn’t restrain themselves. They tapped, they clapped, they burst into song as the musician belted out “Hallelujah, I Love Her So.”
