Question of the day
From longtime friend of avery, RK:

I am curious about the status of the recording rights of this [Rambo] “homegoing” celebration. Were the artists aware that their performances would be commercially marketed/sold? If so, did they sign away the recording rights or are they being paid a royalty? And were they paid an appearance fee to perform?
Putting aside the appropriateness of marketing a funeral DVD (a topic that has been beaten to death a few times on previous posts, no pun intended), I hope this spectacle doesn’t deteriorate into a flurry of lawsuits by record labels and talent agents. But understanding the sorry state of affairs when it comes to paying southern gospel royalties, I know anything is possible.
