It all started when she entered a local talent contest at age 15, and led to a 25-year career in which this Detroit blues and R&B legend has wowed audiences all over the world, released two successful albums on Seattle record label Sub Pop, and been inducted into the Detroit Music Hall of Fame. She has shared the stage with Bonnie Raitt, Gladys Knight, and Etta James, and has done backup vocals for Kid Rock, Alberta Adams, and Bob Seger, both in live performances and in the recording studio. She has also done sound tracks for film and TV, and in 2014 performed at the Concert of Colors with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Backing her at BluesFest are Phillip Hale on keyboards, David Marcccio on drums, Jams Anderson on congas and drums, and Brett Lucas on guitar. Come enjoy the strong, smooth, melodic voice that has had such an impact on the Blues!
