- Remembering 9/11/01 – Testimony, Victoria Lockhart
On September 11, 2001, Victoria Regina Lockhart’s life was permanently altered as she found herself on the 63rd floor of the World Trade Center during the terrorist attack.
“I was looking when the first plan it Tower One. The ironic thing is my son was on the way from New York; all phone lines were down, you couldn’t get through. One of my dear friends, Victoria Lockhart (an Evangelist, Writer, Singer) was on the 63rd floor of the 1st Tower. She walked out without a scratch.”
She was sent a poem four days prior to 911 from author and President of Columbia South Carolina Writer’s Alliance.
The poem was entitled “You Can’t Praise Me From The Grave”. (Nicole B. Simpson)
Here’s an excerpt:
I have heard your prayers, I have seen your tears, I have read the message on the walls of your heart. You will live, you shall not die because death can’t praise me from the grave”.
Victoria’s musical gifts have made her the ideal guest on multi-media platforms that include appearances on
Keeping It Real with Rev. Al Sharpton,
News Channel 4 NY
Good Day New York Channel 5 News,
The Jersey Journal,
The Power of Gospel.
Her CD project was nominated for
“Best Female Vocalist” in the Annual American Gospel Music Awards,
“Outstanding Female Vocalist” by the D’Gospel Music Awards, and
“Outstanding Gospel Artist Of The Year” and
“Best Gospel Single Of The Year – The Wedding Anthem” on the Tiffany Gospel Awards.
“I believe you survive by chance, but you endure by choice,” she said while standing at the podium before a twisted steel beam from the North Tower erected as a waterfront monument at the foot of Grand Street.
