Almeta Ingram-Miller is the leader of The Legendary Ingramettes, a nationally renowned gospel group established by her mother, Maggie Ingram, more than six decades ago.

Almeta, a legend in her own right, shares how the James River has flowed through her life in very unique ways, from witnessing one of Richmond’s worst floods as a child, to the river playing a pivotal role in skyrocketing The Legendary Ingramettes to fame. She also reflects on how the river provides a powerful source of peace and community connection, especially for her late grandson.
