JESSICA KARTALIJA: A local woman is celebrating a very special birthday.

UKEE WASHINGTON: Ms. Hutchinson, who's affectionately known as "Aunt Val," is 105 years young today. Her friends and family celebrated outside of Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Germantown. Aunt Val has lived through World War I, the Roaring '20s, and now, even COVID.

And a special surprise-- her favorite band, Blackbird Society Orchestra, played a number of jazz tunes from the 1920s. Hey, queen! Sending you love, continued blessings, and a happy, happy birthday from all of us. That's just wonderful. That's beautiful.

JESSICA KARTALIJA: Beautiful day for her to celebrate.

UKEE WASHINGTON: Indeed, indeed.
