Wildflower by Candice Jansen

Wildflower is the song that best sings the life of Teresa Mayer. When Teresa was twelve years old, the American band of rhythm and blues, New Birth, released this single in 1973, which the Canadian group, Skylark, originally sung one year before. But New Birth’s version captured Teresa’s heart as a young girl from Winston Salem. Little did she know then it would be the first song she performs for an audience in a small 52nd street club in Philadelphia almost two decades later. It was the first song her father ever heard her sing. Teresa is the youngest daughter of Captain Luke and his closest confidante - his very own wildflower.
