Four years ago Ziek McCarter's father was shot and killed by law enforcement in East Texas. The charismatic 22-year-old singer of San Francisco soul band Con Brio got the devastating news just hours before he was to perform at a Kwanzaa show, so McCarter went to the one place in the Fillmore that's always been like home to him — Marcus Bookstore.

What Johnson told him was simple but profound. "I just want to take this time to hold up a mirror, because your father is now with you," he recalled her saying. "You may see your dad in many places, so get ready for it, embrace it, and allow it to lead you in a positive way."

Poor guy, what a terrible way to lose his dad.
