Albany investigator finds happiness in music

September 22, 2002

Albany- Sgt. Kenneth Washington takes his job very seriously. When he is called to the scene of a crime, he says he never knows what to expect, but he says his faith in God keeps him optimistic.

Washington says being an investigator is time consuming, but he manages to make time to do what he has always enjoyed. He says he loves to sing gospel.

When he was a child, Washington says he can remember filling full of emotion after listening to the church choir sing. Then, he knew he wanted to give others that same feeling, so he wrote a gospel CD, called," On Jordan's Stormy Banks."

The CD has eleven songs that are fast and slow, but he says the entire collection is inspirational. Washington also explains that it's his positive attitude that has made this dream come true.

Washington says he wants people to enjoy his CD. When you feel down, he says it will lift you up. When you feel happy, he says it will make you feel full of joy. He also says he has learned that there is healing and power in music.

Washington will retire from the Albany Police Department on September 27, 2002, after 27 years of service. He will begin his new position as the Chief of Police in Lumpkin the next week.

You can buy his gospel CD at Odyssey Records or at the Flea Market on Sylvester Road.
